Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page for our third Christie Lake Climb for Kids adventure!
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!
This is a project designed to raise money for Christie Lake Kids, a wonderful organization that is transforming the lives of lower-income children here in Ottawa. As a former elementary school principal, I know first-hand the impact that Christie Lake can make in the lives of children living in low-income communities.
Christie Lake Kids runs recreation and leadership programs throughout the year in communities throughout Ottawa and at Christie Lake Camp near Perth, Ontario. Because of the money we have raised through Climb for Kids, new programs are being started for young people in Ottawa!
For me, what is most important about Christie Lake Kids is their commitment to transforming the lives of children. Christie Lake Kids is committed to accompanying young people on their journey to a productive, happy life and I want all of you to become part of that journey!
Our team is taking part in a challenging climb to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro – elevation, 5895 metres or 19340 ft. We will start our climb at the end of July 2020. As we train for this climb, we are looking for donations to support Christie Lake Kids. Our goal this year is to raise $40,000 for CLK programs.
Thanks very much for your help!
