Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear Friends and Family,
I recently accepted the challenge to participate in MY SECOND Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge on May 5, 2019.
I'm excited to take on this challenge and look forward to pushing myself as I climb the 775 vertical feet (1204 steps) of The BOW building in downtown Calgary.
I will be completing this challenge wearing full Canadian Fire gear, Steel Toe boots, Helmet and a SCBA (air pack).
Last year I was able to complete this event in 20:05 and was completly sapped of energy and breath by the top. This year I am setting the goal of shaving 2 min. off my time and beating more of my peers. I have already started hitting the guy 3-4 times a week and am provoking my peers with the challenge.
As a teacher, I plan to use this opportunity to discuss and model goal setting and perseverance for my kids. I will also be discussing and modeling the idea of global citizenship.
I'm asking for your help with a donation. Your tax-deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of many affected by cancer. All the money raised will go towards Wellspring Calgary, an organization that provides free programs and resources to people impacted by cancer. We all know that cancer is a grim possibility in my line of work so supporting Wellspring makes good sense.
It's fast and easy to support my climb. You can make your donation online simply by clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. Or, you can send your donation by cheque made out to Wellspring Calgary to the address listed below. Please put my name on your note/memo with the cheque so that Wellspring knows your gift is in support of my climb.

Any amount, great or small, helps those affected by cancer. I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress!
