Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page for our Christie Lake Climb for Kids Adventure 2020/2021!
John and I joined an amazing team of trekkers last year and together we raised almost $40k, and completed the 170 km Tour Mont Blanc. Thanks so much to all of you who supported us in 2019!
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!
We are back for the 2020 initiative, raising funds once again for Christie Lake Kids, a wonderful organization that is transforming the lives of children here in Ottawa. Christie Lake Kids enriches the lives and prospects of economically disadvantaged children and youth by providing year-round community and camp programs at no cost and with all barriers to participation removed.
I am asking you to become part of that journey! Our team is taking part in a very challenging climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in August 2020. As we train for this climb, we are looking for donations to support Christie Lake Kids. Small donations are most welcome! I am told that even $5 can make a difference for a child participating in an after school program. All of the funds you donate go to Christie Lake Kids - participants on the trek pay 100% of the costs of the trip.
Thanks very much for your support! Communities move mountains and together we can continue to make a difference for children and youth in our community.
