CAN Fund Testimonial:
As a determined individual, I’ve done everything it takes to get to where I am, but of course, it also takes money. I put myself into a fair amount of debt in order to go the places I needed to go and do the things I needed to do in order to fulfill my dreams. That could only take me so far. Now for the second time, the CAN Fund is contributing a huge amount of $6000 to relieve a huge amount of stress, and allow me to focus on training and competing for our country.

Best Result:
3 Canadian Records – 1500m: 2:55.72, 5000m: 9:55.73, 10000m- 19:51.54. Winner of 2010 Virgin London Marathon
