Performance Notes

× Alvin Law Promo for March of Dimes

Armless “and” Amazing! Two words that normally don’t go together but for Alvin Law, they do. In 1960, he was born without arms. In 1976, he was “Timmy”, Easter Seal’s spokesperson for disabled children. That year, a press release said; Alvin may appear “disabled” but this 16 year old plays drums and trombone with his feet! He is the essence of the charity’s goal to focus on children’s “Abilities” and quality of life”! In 2020, Alvin is a Hall of Fame Speaker, who in 2018 was also inducted into the Canadian Disability Hall of Fame...two Halls of Fame! Must be quite the story. Indeed. March of Dimes Canada is elated to bring this incredible example of “Quality of Life” to Red Deer who will share his inspiring life story, and even play a couple of instruments to remind us when we focus on “Abilities”, anything is possible.
