ABOUT US PROGRAMS EVENTS FRIENDS HELP US CONTACT US
Welcome to My Personal Page
This summer I am leading the Challenge for Hope rowing event on August 20th to raise money for a cause that is very important to me. I am participating in a long rowing program along with The Toronto Police Service and will be donating my expertice and Olympic skills in rowing to anyone willing to donate to our cause and running mentoring programs for youth and adults with diabetes.
With one in every 250-400 Canadian children living with type 1 diabetes, I am proud to support a cause that touches so many children in Canada.
Growing up is not easy. Children and youth living with diabetes face challenging and overwhelming obstacles every day:
Once you acquire diabetes, you have no option but to live with it, manage it and control it, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?for the rest of your life.
Every donation counts and helps the Diabetes Hope Foundation move closer to achieving its vision of providing children and adolescents with the survival tools they need to achieve success in all areas of their lives to maintain good health in the years to come.
Thank you for considering my request. I really appreciate it!
About the Challenge
The Challenge for Hope Rowing and Viking Festival is Toronto's newest rowing event brought to the community to raise awareness and funding for Ontario children and youth living with diabetes by 4 hosting partners ? Bayside Rowing Club, Diabetes Hope Foundation, I Challenge Diabetes and Toronto Police Service. This is the event?s inaugural year and will take place on August 20th at the Bayside Rowing Club along Toronto?s waterfront. Our community event will be a public event open to all interested and will be free to attendees.
Chris Jarvis and Dominic Kahn will be providing rowing training sessions to all participants in the event as well as those who have diabetes and want to learn about their diabetes in sport and those willing to fund raise towards our cause.
Proceeds from the event will support Diabetes Hope Foundation?s diabetes camp programming for children and youth living with type 1 diabetes. With your support, Diabetes Hope Foundation will send at-risk and low-income youth with diabetes away to camp in 2012.
