Kristen Langille spends a quiet moment with her two daughters – Abbie and Georgia
Fourteen-month-old Georgia Langille and her family are the inspiration behind the all-day March 28 initiative, which will see Simply for Life partner up with The Loft, Split Crow, Champions and the Railyard Pub in support of the IWK Foundation.
Georgia, the second daughter to Fraser and Kristen Langille, has been in and out of hospitals after being born blind and deaf, and diagnosed with congenital disorder of glycosolation. She may never walk or be out of diapers for the rest of her life.
Because of small businesses such as Inglis Jewellers, Fulton Insurance, MacKinnon Fitness/Breathing Space Yoga, MarMac Athletics and Physio One already stepping forward to help the family out in one way or another, the local restaurants and Simply for Life are joining forces.
On March 28, the four restaurants will feature a healthy Simply for Life special and for every order of that special, 15 per cent of the customer’s bill will be donated to the IWK Foundation in the Langille family name.
