Darevin’s Story


BC Lions

Darevin teamed up with players from the BC Lions for the 2017 CFL PLAYSAFE PSA.

The War Amps has seen the consequences of lawn mower accidents all too often. Every year, children who have been seriously injured are enrolled in our Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program. That is why we are launching a public awareness campaign about the dangers of lawn mowers.

Having lost his left foot in a lawn mower accident, Darevin is eager to share his story. As a Safety Ambassador for The War Amps, he appears in public service announcements to help spread the PLAYSAFE™ message. He warns other kids to spot the danger before they play so that they won’t have a serious accident like he had.

When people ask about my leg, I tell them that I got too close to a lawn mower and I lost my foot. Don’t let it happen to you… PLAYSAFE! Darevin

Our PLAYSAFE videos are a great way to teach kids that safety is no accident! Child amputees who have lost limbs in accidents explain how their accidents happened and demonstrate the artificial limbs they wear to lead active lives.

You can help spread the PLAYSAFE message to children in your community!
