A Milestone has been reached!

Not the $1000 mark. That is just a bare minimum amount...the milestone is my high school buddies! This is the first year they have all had their name to an amount. Taylor being the laziest.

Thanks guys!

Back to the house on Friday. I have had to miss the last two shifts.
A quick mention about Joan who sometimes writes here. She has passed the 750 hour mark for time at Canuck Place. Wow. I am not sure where I am. If there is a number it is probably inaccurate as I often forget to sign in!

Why does my Dad thinks this will be snap?

Mum and Dad always donate $50. My Dad is the only person who thinks things like this will be a snap:

Do you belong to any team? This year should be a snap for you.........Dad

thanks for the $50!
a snap? you have to be kidding! the only times i have had the chance to ride my bike I have gone out and hurt myself! have just started running...not very well either...and i was paddling my surf board around and my life jacket chaffed my armpit! will be a snap!

Why I do this race

Adventure. I have yet to do the race without an event happening that works as a sideline story.

If you are lucky enough to be reading this than you will be ready to read the results in September.

Please give to the house!


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!
