The Money started to roll in...

Ok.  Not quite as dramatic as that but it started with $10.  One of my grade niners came out of his final exam and was in my room saying bye.  He takes out his wallet and pulls out a ten spot.  "Here", he says with a dismissive nod of the head.  I couldn't figure it out, as he kept waving me and the ten dollar bill away from his as if it had some communicable disease. 
"Its for your race.", he says.  Cool!  So I quickly retreated and wrote his name on the bill and stapled it to the wall.  That $10 is now $36!

Thanks Adam, Sam, and Kira!

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!
