Paws for a Cause was created to help fund the Day Away - Jerry's Gift program at the Never Alone Foundation in honour of Jerry Maslowsky.
Jerry Maslowsky worked alongside Never Alone Foundation's founder, Lyle Bauer at the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Jerry was instrumental in helping with many of the early events, and remained close to the Foundation over the years.
Jerry's Gift allows individuals, families, and caregivers affected by cancer the opportunity to experience a break from everyday life by attending a memorable event (theatre, sporting events, concerts, etc.). Jerry also loved animals, especially his grand-puppy Rue. Dogs have the ability to offer companionship and love like no other and can recognize when a loved one is suffering. Rue would sit with Jerry for hours, offering her unconditional love and comfort.
