About

Established in 1995, Charity Focus grew with the dreams of children in mind, especially those with life-threatening and debilitating physical illnesses. The idea was birthed by the love of a police officer from Ontario for his son who had passed away early in his life due to muscular dystrophy.

Lucas is ten years old and is very active. He won’t miss the chance to ride a bike, play baseball, or basically, try everything. When he had a traumatic injury that affected his spinal cord and put him in a wheelchair, he did not let that stop him from challenging himself and inspiring others.
