Welcome to My Personal Fundraising Page!
In 2012, I participated in the Make-A-Wish® Rope for Hope campaign in memory of my late wife, Marty. That year, and every year since, I've had the good fortune to meet the children of Make-A-Wish® and I'm always impressed with their courage and positive outlook. Some of them have even done the rappel with me. This year, in spite of the pandemic, I'm returning for my tenth year to do the rappel - to help these kids realize their wishes, and to raise some funds for that purpose. In recent years, I've joined up with other climbers and friends in the GTA to form the Toronto Climbers team, and in the last five years we raised over $225,000! We don't find many ways to raise funds for a good cause and to have fun at the same time!!
This year's rappel will be a bit different, and even more exciting, as we'll be rappelling from the rooftop of the 35-storey Westin Harbour Castle Hotel on the waterfront!
Our team's fundraising goal this year is $45,000, and my share of that goal is $9,000; you can help me reach these goals and make a difference too! Your support will allow Make-A-Wish® to create powerful wish experiences, improving a child’s state of mind, replacing fear with happiness and helping them to feel like a normal kid again.
