Who is Chris cederstrand?
Chris Cederstrand is our Foundation Founder and the face of our mission.
Growing up in small town Saskatchewan, Chris spent the early part of his life playing hockey. As a teenager, he was drafted in the WHL, later going on to graduate Fire School in Vermillion, Alberta. While applying and interviewing for a position as a firefighter in Calgary, Chris began work in road construction. At the age of 25 and recently married, Chris was in a tragic life threatening work accident that resulted in an above knee amputation of his right leg. Being told that sport was no longer an option for him, Chris had to find ways to rebuild his life. With the support of family and friends, Chris has pushed himself to accomplish everything that he was once told he no longer could.
Fast forward to today, Chris is a father of two and has received numerous recognitions throughout Canada for his determination, leadership, and endless work for helping others persevere in all of life's challenges.
