A year ago, I did an online crowdsourcing fundraiser called www.pursu.it. It was very successful and helped me broaden my network in many ways. I met Dave Howard, President of The Event Group, through this site. He has been keen and active in helping athletes that want to help themselves. Dave has been a big help in spreading my story but has also stepped up and sponsored me via The Canadian Legacy Project. This is a non-profit foundation devoted to support disadvantaged youth, seniors and veterans. This project develops programs and events for the betterment of their lifestyles.
Most recently, The Canadian Legacy Project helped those families affected by the flooding in Calgary this summer.
I feel honoured to be supported by Dave and his goodwill. I am paying it forward every chance I can.
