I’m embarking on (what will be for me) a physical challenge for a great cause, that being Christie Lake Kids.

According to their website.......”At Christie Lake Kids we believe the experience of growing up in poverty does not define a person or limit their potential. We build physical, social and character skills in children facing barriers associated with poverty through Transformative Recreation experiences.” A variety of recreation and leadership programs are run throughout Ottawa as well as at Christie Lake Camp near Perth.

In July I’ll be taking part in a 170 km trek around Mont Blanc. Below you’ll find a link to info about the trek as well as a link to my donation page. If anyone wishes to help support children in financial need who benefit from the experiences provided by Christie Lake Kids, please follow the links below. Thanks so much for your donation! (And wish me luck with my training and trekking!)

This project was designed to raise money for Christie Lake Kids, an organization based in Ottawa. They help make the lives of economically disadvantaged kids and youth better by providing experiences they would otherwise not be able to have. I'm at it again! Last year, Year one of the project, we trekked through the Andes in Peru - it was quite the challenging feat! This year, we are hiking around Mont Blanc. I'm joining again this year because it brought great pride and pleasure to be able to help someone else. Of course, I'm still looking to challenge myself both physically and mentally.

As an elementary school principal, I often see and hear kids with broken hearts because their parents can't afford to send them to summer camp. Christie Lake changes this for many kids. Make sure you visit their page to see all they offer! This is one small thing I can do to help better the lives of many children.

Our team of 14 will be taking part in a challenging trek around Mont Blanc. As we train for this climb, we are looking for donations to support Christie Lake. Thank you very much for your support! Think of all the students who will benefit from your generosity!

I was thrilled to be the Halifax contingent for the first climb last year, and just as pleased to join the second trek.

This is a project designed to raise money for Christie Lake Kids, a wonderful organization that is transforming the lives of children in Ottawa. Christie Lake Kids supports children living in low-income communities to access recreational opportunities, so important in children’s development.

Having worked at children’s camps in the past, and devoted many years of my career to helping children and families access resources, I am happy to support Christie Lake Kids in its commitment to accompanying children in their development of productive and happy lives.

Our team is taking part in a challenging climb around Mont Blanc, in Italy, France, and Switzerland. We will trek 170 km in 14 days in July of 2019. As we train for this climb, we are looking for donations to support Christie Lake Kids.

As I did last year, in recognition that this is an Ottawa area charity and many of you live in other places, I propose this: if you make a donation I will match your donation, and I will make a donation of an equal amount to the charity of your choice here in Nova Scotia or wherever you live. Just send me a note where, and I will be happy to make a donation in your name.

Thanks very much for your support! You are really helping us to continue an important fundraising experience.

This project is designed to raise money for Christie Lake Kids, a special organization transforming the lives of under privileged children based here in Ottawa.

As many of you know I am a retired school teacher and vice principal; I had the privilege of working with children from 4 years old up to the age of 18. I understand the profound impact Christie Lake Kids can make in the lives of children especially those living from low-income communities.

Our team (currently 14) is taking part in a challenging climb around Mont Blanc. We will trek 170 km in 14 days in July of 2019 in France.

The essential mission of Christie Lake Kids is their commitment to transforming the lives of children. Christie Lake Kids plays a part in accompanying young people on their journey to a productive and happy life. I would like for all of you to share in this journey with me.

We are looking for donations to support Christie Lake Kids, as we train for this climb; any amount is appreciated as it eventually all adds up. I pledge to match the total dollar amount of your donations on my behalf to our team with an equal amount of my own donation.

Thank you very much for your support!

This project is designed to raise money for Christie Lake Kids, a wonderful organization that is transforming the lives of children here in Ottawa in so many ways. As a teacher and parent, I know first-hand the impact that Christie Lake can make in the lives of children living in low-income communities.

What I have learned over the past few years is the Christie Lake Kids’ commitment and ability to transform the lives of children. I have met many young people whose lives would not be the same with Christie Lake Kids programs and summer camp. So many children in Ottawa face challenges we could not even imagine. CLK helps them to build resilience, skills and the ability to see opportunity in challenge.

In the first Climb for Kids trek, many of us struggled through the climb and journey. At high altitudes, on long treks, some of us could take only one step at a time, then breathe. We had to call on our resilience, patience and appreciation of those who were walking with us. At times, I think this is how many CLK kids are living and getting through.

In July, 2019 our team is taking part in a challenging climb around Mont Blanc. We will trek 170 km in 14 days through mountain passes and alpine meadows. As we train for this climb, we are looking for donations to support Christie Lake Kids.

Thanks very much for your support! You are really helping us to continue an important fundraising experience and we are very happy to have you on the journey!!

This project was designed to raise money for Christie Lake Kids, a great charitable organization based in Ottawa.

Christie Lake Kids provides economically disadvantaged children from the capital region with the opportunity to participate at no cost in quality year-round community and camp programs to develop physical, artistic, and social skills, positive attitudes and personal qualities.

Help forge the leaders of tomorrow by being the one in ten.

The One in Ten - Edgar A. Guest

Nine passed him by with a hasty look,
Each bent on his eager way;
One glance at him was the most they took,
"Somebody stuck," said they;
But it never occurred to the nine to heed
A stranger's plight and a stranger's need.
The tenth man looked at the stranded car,
And he promptly stopped his own.
"Let's see if I know what your troubles are,"
Said he in a cheerful tone;
"Just stuck in the mire. Here's a cable stout, Hitch onto my bus and I'll pull you out."
"A thousand thanks," said the stranger then,
"For the debt that I owe you;
I've counted them all and you're one in ten
Such a kindly deed to do."
And the tenth man smiled and he answered then,
"Make sure that you'll be the one in ten."
Are you one of the nine who pass men by
in this hasty life we live?
Do you refuse with a downcast eye
The help which you could give?
Or are you the one in ten whose creed
Is always to stop for the man in need?

This year our climbing team is taking part in a challenging climb around Mont-Blanc in France, Switzerland and Italy. As we train for this climb, I will be looking for donations to support Christie Lake. 100% of the funds donated will go to the Christie Lake Kids.

Thank You for your support, you will be making a difference in the life of a young Canadian.

This project is designed to raise money for Christie Lake Kids, an amazing organization that enriches the lives of many young people in our community funding sports and arts programs during the school year and overnight camping experiences in the summer for kids who couldn’t otherwise access them due to a lack of financial resources.

As a teacher in the community, I have seen firsthand the impact Christie Lake Kids has had on many of the kids with whom I work every day. The activities they can access because of CLK not only teach them new skills, they provide social opportunities, to make new friends and learn how to be part of a team. These programs also teach perseverance and working towards a goal. These are crucial skills in the healthy development of youth.

I was one of the trekkers in the first Climb for Kids in August 2018 to Peru. I still have some Peruvian dirt on my hiking boots! At times it was a tough go, with the high altitudes and rough terrain. Quite often we had to rely on each other to make it through the day. Our perseverance and determination helped us reach our goals. Those are the kinds of skills CLK is providing for some of our community’s most vulnerable youth.

In July, 2019 our team is taking part in a challenging climb around Mont Blanc. We will trek 170 km in 14 days through mountain passes and alpine meadows. As we train for this climb, we are looking for donations to support Christie Lake Kids.

Thanks in advance for your generous support. Your donations really are making a difference in the lives of kids in neighbourhoods all over Ottawa. Thank you for becoming part of our team!!
