Since 2015, our Convaid | R82 Ambassador families have shared their personal triumphs, adventures and product insights on Social Media and within their communities. We’ve watched toddlers grow into kids and kids into teens. We’ve walked, rolled and run for causes. We’ve watched friendships blossom from an initial exchange about a product or condition.
Now, in 2018, Convaid | R82 has taken its Ambassador Program to a new level by appointing an Ambassador to each of the larger service territories across North America. We will follow this story with pictures and profiles of each Ambassadors. We also have a couple additional Ambassadors to announce who are in the final stages of joining our team!

Every year each Ambassador family brings its own style and energy to educate and inform others about their choice in pediatric products. Together, our collective knowledge of our community is unparalleled and can promote positive change in the lives of many. Once they have served their initial term, many Ambassadors elect to continue serving in the capacity of Ambassador Emeritus, continuing their engagement with our brands and special needs community.
In 2018 and onward Convaid | R82 will support the newly appointed local Ambassadors in championing their causes through our Territory Managers and local dealers. When there is a worthwhile community event we will work together to attend, promote and share valuable product information.
Condition Coalition & Advocacy
Convaid | R82 has been on a multi-year path to strengthen community alliances with organizations advocating awareness around Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Rett Syndrome, MDA and other conditions. Our Ambassadors may elect to work within these communities or suggest alliances more akin to their conditions. Convaid | R82 will work with Ambassadors to publicize worthwhile events together.
Every family has a story. Every story can inspire, inform or entertain others. Our 2018 Ambassadors will share their experiences on Social Media and by personal appearances.
