Roger's House
Roger's House is a ' Canuck Place East' and serves those kids in need in the Ottawa region of Ontario. If I am not mistaken it is only the second freestanding hospice of its kind in Canada (Canuck Place being first).
Roger Neilson was head coach of the Vancouver Canucks during their run to the finals against NY. Roger hoisted the 'white flag' in a game against Chicago in protest to the refereeing. Towel Power was born.
Roger died of cancer in 2003 and Roger's House is his legacy.

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!

I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?


Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
