Welcome to My Personal Page
I am participating in the 2018 B&O Yorkville Run to support the important work of Project Sunshine Canada.
As most of you know, I am on the Board of Directors for Project Sunshine. This cause means a lot to me because of the number of friends and family members who have found themselves unexpectedly at a Childrens hospital for their kids- it's shocking and emotional and sometimes devastating, and Project Sunshine works on putting programs in place to help support the children but also the caregivers. I like giving my time and energy to a cause that helps people we know, here at home and across our country.
This year, I am running with my whole family- even the boys are registered participants, and they have been helping me train all summer. Please support me to show them how we are all making a difference through our fundraising efforts!
The money raised from this event supports programming in hospitals and healthcare facilities for young patients and their families. Project Sunshine Canada is a registered Canadian charity, and part of an international team that provides free creative, educational, recreational and social programs to children and their families facing medical challenges. Since 2012 alone over 20,000 children and their families have participated in Project Sunshine Canada programs in 22 healthcare facilities in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland & Labrador. Project Sunshine is also active in the USA, Kenya, China and Israel.
Thanks for your support!
