Proud Supporter of Better Health & Well-Being For All
As part of our commitment to better health and well-being for all, Drake Medox has been a proud supporter of many important initiatives over the years in New Zealand. We are currently involved with a number of organisations and associtations to help promote and raise the awareness of the importance of "inclusion" for those living with a long term disability, and better health care services for all.
The Attitude Awards
Drake Medox is a Silver Sponsor of the Attitude Awards in New Zealand. The annual Attitude Awards recognises the achievements of people with a disability; saluting artists, sportsmen and women, people with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, and mental health issues. Our six year long association continues to promote and drive a more accepting, respectful and inclusive society.
We are also proud sponsor of mobility dogs. Each mobility dog undergoes an extensive training program so they can provide functional assistance to people who are living with long term physical disability, and who need help in their day-to-day living. Mobility dogs increase independence and also encourage inclusion, providing a greater sense of security so people can do more of the things they want to do.
