Editors Note: Mother’s Day is just around the corner! In these lockdown times when we can’t visit and must socially distance, let’s send some love to all this year!

In honour of the upcoming celebration, Durham Women’s Network would love to hear what your mothers, grandmothers, aunties, and anyone that you love has passed down to you, whether it be words of wisdom, a recipe, family heirloom, cherished stories or anything else you’d like to share. We would love photos as well! Share your stories and photos with us via email.

We will be drawing from all entries for a chance to win a  special Buffalo Plaid Fleece KoolKape liner gifted by Koolway Sports to your special loved one this Mother’s Day!

About Koolway Sports

The Koolway Story Behind the Hummingbird Logo

Koolway Sports is now a worldwide company. God bless our mothers Daphne and Wilma  (DW) for showing us the path from above and what life really means: “The art of giving back to those and understanding why we are here.”

We continue to have conversations with both Daphne and Wilma, and using their example as mentoring from above as we continue to find solutions for the challenges of dressing.

Each day we are guided in our vision and mission by our two mothers and our logo shows on the left their DW Hummingbird Wings, always ready to guide and strengthen our desire to ensure those using mobility can live to the maximum level of independence in all aspects of their life and that of their families.

We thank them for their wise words and for teaching us, that above all else, the greatest achievements in life are not the ones that earn you a trophy or money or even a powerful position. But it is the quiet determined accomplishments that no one hears about until years later.

Daphne and Wilma were placed on this earth for a purpose and our source of joy, inspiration, pride, and light is directly from their examples of what life means. May their memory be a blessing for all of us, and may we carry that light with us always and teach others their way.

We are honoured to share our DW Hummingbird story with another important group of women the Durham Women’s Network (DWN) and so fitting that our initials overlap like two rings attached in one common loop.

For those wishing to purchase one of the special Buffalo Plaid Fleece KoolKape liner for Mother’s Day please contact and subject line: Mother’s Day 2021 for a special DWN discount. Please us code: DWN21

Let us work together to create something wonderful and special for our grandmothers and mothers in Durham Region or wherever they reside this 2021.

Thanks for giving us this special opportunity during this difficult times…stay safe.
