Our donation to Canadian Athletes Now Fund will benefit two athletes in their bid for the 2016 Olympics.  As a self-proclaimed Olympaholic, I am thrilled to share this information on these two talented people.  I know I’ll be cheering8944 CanFund COL Logo FR FA.ai them on in Rio this summer!

Adam Froese – Field Hockey

From Abbotsford British Columbia, Adam made his National team debut in 2009 and has quickly developed into one of Canada’s top defenders.  He has appeared in over 120 international games including representing Canada at the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games and most recently the 2015 Pan Am Games where Adam and his teammates won silver.  At the 2015 Pan Am Games Adam scored the 5th goal for Canada in the semi-final shootout which also clinched an Olympic berth for Canada to the Rio 2016 Games.  Rio would mark Adam’s first Olympic Games where the squad is looking for a top performance in 2016.

Magali Harvey – Rugby 7s

From Quebec City, Magali has exploded onto the international scene becoming one of Canada’s top offensive players since making her 7s debut in 2011.  She has also represented Canada in the 15s at the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup where she most notably was named the 2014 IRB Women’s Rugby Player of the Year after leading her team to a silver medal and finishing the tournament tied for second with 61 points.  At the most recent 2015 Pan Am Games Magali and her teammates won gold in the 7’s and Magali finished tied for first in tournament scoring.  The Canadian Women’s Rugby 7s team has qualified for Rio 2016 where rugby is making its Olympic debut.  They are currently ranked second in the world so are training hard with their sights set on the podium in Rio.

 

Our donation to SoldierOn will help assist them in their aim of supporting ill and injurBanner-1_E-aug-13ed military personnel with a permanent or chronic disability, both still serving and retired, and their families to attain an active and healthy lifestyle. Our donation helps support these personnel in increasing their independence, in developing new skills, in achieving goals and opening the door to other life opportunities. It furnishes an opportunity for them to socialize and explore common interests, and share learning experiences.

And our donation to the Alzheimer’s Society will help find a cure for this devastating disease that affects adults of all ages.   In fact, I was surprised to learn that more than 70,000 British Columbians have Alzheimer’s disease or alzheimers_bcanother form of dementia. And the numbers are increasing as younger people are being impacted and baby boomers are aging. Every year 15,000 British Columbians are developing dementia.   We are happy to help find a cure and offer education and treatment options to these adults through the Alzheimer’s Society efforts.

 

We want to thank our clients who have supported us in the past fiscal year, so that we could support these worthy causes.
