The golfers raised $105,000 during this event.

MHCare Medical Provides the Gift of Enhanced Mobility to University of Alberta Student
MHCare Medical and its President, Sam Mraiche, provided the gift of enhanced mobility to Political Science student Hussain Al-Hussainy at the University of Alberta on April 29, 2022.
Al-Hussainy started his academic studies at the U of A in the fall of 2020. He quickly realized that the short time frame between classes, vast university campus and mobility challenges he faced due to cerebral palsy were going to make it a challenge to get to and from classes in a timely manner. Al-Hussainy has used a walker since a young age to provide mobility assistance, but this mode of support just wasn’t cutting once he had to navigate the lengthy pathways between buildings on campus.
Al-Hussainy’s wish was to have a custom-designed power wheelchair specked out for his exact needs to help him get around more easily, but this goal was not within his reach given the high cost of this equipment. When Mraiche heard Al-Hussainy’s story, he was touched by the tenacity of this young man, who despite his challenges, was still dedicated to his studies and a promising future for himself.
Mraiche immediately wanted to help and made the decision to gift this life changing device to Al-Husseiny.
Mraiche and the MHCare Medical team are excited to be a part of Al-Hussainy’s journey and can’t wait to see all the places he will now go!
