Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page for Christie Lake Climb for Kids!
This is our third group climb- 2018 we climbed the Ausangate Range in Peru, last year it was the Tour du Mont Blanc in the Alps, this summer 2020 will bring us to the highest free-standing mountain in the world- Kilimanjaro! 3 climbs, 3 continents, 3 fundraising ventures for Christie Lake Kids.
Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are putting our plans on hold for this year. BUT Christie Lake Kids still needs our help and Climb for Kids continues. To keep things going we will be holding a special fundraiser on Saturday, April 18 - Step Up For Kids. You can find more information about this here. You can join us as we climb the stairs for CLK or donate to one of our pages!
Christie Lake Kids is an amazing organization that is transforming the lives of children here in Ottawa. As a music teacher in the OCDSB, I know first-hand the impact that Christie Lake can have on the lives of children living in low-income communities. CLK funds both after school programs (sports and arts) and overnight summer camps for kids who otherwise would not be able to access these formative activities. Through Christie Lake Kids programs, kids not only learn practical skills related to specific activities, they also learn perseverance, social skills and how to work as part of a team, all crucial to their future success in work and life in general.
Every dollar that we raise helps a child in our community experience learning opportunities that they will carry with them their whole lives.
Our climbing team this year is taking part in the challenging climb of the 5900m roof of Africa. As we start our rigorous training, we hope that you will support us by donating to Christie Lake Kids, helping kids in our community reach their own heights!!
Thanks very much for your support! You are really helping us with our journey and we are very happy to have you along for the trip!!
