CAN Fund Testimonial:
I am honored and extremely grateful to have been selected as a recipient of the CAN Fund. This funding will greatly contribute to my goals of competing in the 2012 Olympic Games and reaching the podium. It will help me focus more on my training and less on how I’m going to pay my next bill. It will be used towards paying for medical treatments, and other training and performance enhancing expenses so that I can reach my full potential as an athlete and achieve my goal of representing Canada on the world stage.

Best Result:
4th place in the 2003 Women’s World Cup
