CanFUND Matching Push

Today is the last day that the Canadian Athletes’ Fund (aka CanFund) has their dollar-for-dollar match funding campaign on.  This is a fund that has given me over $30K over my athletic career.  When Mira was born, the fund connected with Kushies baby clothes and a box of new clothes magically arrived on our doorstep.  It was great to have some clothes that were not second hand.

If you are interested, if you can, look up Athlete Holiday Drive and donate to the dreams and successes of many Canadian Olympic Athletes.  For a little more insight into the fund, you can find Randy Starkman’s blog from the Toronto Star.

I will apply for both application periods this year, which means I could potentially earn $12 K from the fund this year alone.  That would nearly double my annual income from sport.  That sort of extra funding makes a significant difference in my life.

Thanks for thinking about supporting the fund – and further supporting me!
