After 40 years of service, Randy Papple, deputy chief of Brant Brantford Paramedic has retired.

Randy has not only served this community through his vocation, but also through his work with charitable causes and events.

Kids Can Fly has been fortunate to have the support of Randy over the years and we are so grateful for all his support, energy and giving.

You may remember seeing Randy at the Super Hero fundraiser held on Labour Day at Dairee Delite.  He comes as ‘Band-Aid the clown’ and delights children with his balloon animals and infectious energy.

To honour this milestone and to thank Randy for all he has done, Kids Can Fly is placing a child off of the waiting list onto Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.  We can think of no better tribute than to give back to the community that Randy loves so much.

Even though Randy has retired, we hope to still see Band-Aid the clown out in the future!!
