Why CAN Fund?
I really believe in Canadian athletes and the pride they give Canadians as they compete at the highest levels of their sports. I truly love watching both the summer and winter Olympics every 4 years, and realize the dedication and discipline it takes to get to that big stage. If I can help in one small way, I feel so grateful and inspired watching them pursue their dream.
 
Favourite quote or words to live by.
“I love the winning, I can take the losing, but most of all I love to play.”
