CAN Fund Testimonial:
The Canadian Athletes Now Fund will help me in many tangible ways including training fees, and training camps but the most important factor for me is that it enables me to spend many more hours training, working out and focusing on my sport rather than spending that time working more hours.
2003 IPC World Champion and 2005 missed the T13 800m World Record by 0.3 seconds.
I have run for Canada since 1996 and have won over 20 international medals. I am the current national record holder in the T13 400m, 800m, and 1500m. I have been sponsored by New Balance since 2000. I am an elementary school teacher. I have coached numerous teams including XC Running, Track and Field, Basketball and Volleyball. I find it hard coaching students that are not fully committed or those that have a lot of potential but do not care enough to realize it.
