2012 Adventure Challenge(s)

I have begun the process of getting ready to think about the prospect of perhaps starting to get ready to train -aka not dying on the trails- for the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges in mid September.

I am well behind in my fundraising and think that my email may be marked as a spam producer and believe that 90% of my emails to solicit funds will go unread.

I need a bike.  The BIKE is officially on its last legs and I do not think there is a hope in heaven that it can make its way through yet another race.

My body hurts.  Are the aches and pains of agedness really equivalent to what it feels like after playing in 2 rugby games in one day....or is there something wrong with my muscles and tendons?

Help and share!  Click-->HERE to sponsor me and help raise money for Canuck PLace.

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!
