CAN Fund Testimonial:
For the past 8 years I have been a member of the Canadian Women’s National Field Hockey team and for the past eight years I have seen my teammates and I work to be more than just the best in Canada. As a player I am responsible for giving quarterly levy’s and fundraising so that our team has the funds to play more international games. Over the years I have had to continuously turn to my friends and family for this support. This year CAN Fund is giving me that support. Thank you CAN Fund.
