Team Jigger exists to motivate, encourage and provide the tools and resources necessary for everyBODY to live and function without barriers.
We aspire to create an environment that is equally accessible, functional, and structured for everyBODY while providing tools to support independence.
Team Jigger is a Community, a Facility, and a Helping Hand!
With donations from people like you, we are able to open an accessible movement facility that houses state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment and a team of rehabilitation professionals to help get you moving! More equipment coming soon!
A day spent enjoying one of his favourite sports quickly turned into the unimaginable; Cobyn was riding his bike at the Canda Olympic Park (COP) when he suddenly crashed. The next thing he recalls is waking up on the ICU unit at Foothills Hospital in Calgary.
With the help of funds raised through Team Jigger, members of our community have been able to move, feel better, and live happier.
August 30th 2015 was the day that everything changed for Amanda. She was driving home from shopping with two friends when they were t-boned at an uncontrolled intersection.
After 13 months in the hospital recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury and beginning her rehabilitation journey, Amanda had to adjust to her new reality.
Little did Char know that on the second day into a 60km backpacking trip in late August 2020, the adventure awaiting that day would not be a summit, but rather an emergency long line evacuation from search and rescue and a rendezvous with STARS air ambulance.
The Team Jigger 'Stach'
We understand how frustrating it can be when things aren't accessible... So over the years, we've built up a selection of accessibility and mobility equipment to help 'bridge the gap'! Some of the equipment available for rent is as follows...
Ramps of all sizes! From 10 stair ramps to door jam and sidewalk ramps!
'Piece-of-mind' transportation- wheelchair accessible van.
Wheelchairs, walkers, and canes!
... just to name a few!
So who is Team Jigger for?
Team Jigger is for EveryBODY! While our inspiration sprung from the rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries and associated disorders, our capacity for helping is not limited to that!
Regardless of your age, physical abilities or situation, Team Jigger is here to help! Our doors are open to EveryBODY to move, connect, and receive a variety of treatments.
From age 1 to 101, there will be something at Team Jigger that you can benefit from!
