Our children are our future! Sadly one of the greatest threats to their future is child obesity.

As you know, I completed the 2017 Quebec City Marathon (26.2 miles) and raised $3,800 to combat child obesity in Akwesasne.

Next, I will be running in the 2018 Ottawa Marathon on May 27, 2018 to raise funds to continue the battle versus child obesity in our community. 100% of the funds that I raise will go to Akwesasne’s Iakwa’shatste Youth Fitness, a wonderful non-for-profit organization whose main purpose is to provide expert fitness, nutrition and leadership education to youth in Akwesasne and surrounding communities.  Iakwashatste is fantastic group of people doing some tremendous work. They had over 700 children go through their program so far! I want to help them help more children!

My goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000. I can’t do it alone – I need your support. Every bit helps! It’s for our children!

You have 2 options to support this initiative:

Your support is greatly appreciated!
