DIFA Founders Honoured At Queen's Park

The Do It For Aaron (DIFA) Founders have been presented with an award from the Province.

Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark and Attorney General Yasir Naqvi presented the Victim Services Award of Distinction Award to Willy and Kelly Stevenson at Queen's Park on Thursday.

"It's an incredibly well-deserved honour for such an inspirational couple," says Clark. "Willy and Kelly found the strength to turn the tragic loss of their son, Aaron, into something amazing for our community with the Do It For Aaron Festival and Foundation”

Aaron was hit by a truck while skateboarding home on Highway 2.

The pair have since created the DIFA Festival, which raises money for local community groups.

This includes raising over $80,000 to create an annual bursary for graduating students from Brockville Collegiate Institute and St. Mary's High School who want to pursue music.
