My family is very fortunate. Our 3 kids are healthy and active, have access to great schooling and are able to participate in a host of extra-curricular and sport activities. Sadly, this is not the standard for all kids in Ottawa.
I have met many kids like Olivia (see our team's Sponsored Kid) whose family counts on the specialized care only available at Roger Neilson House. I have been to visit kids at camp - including camp for kids with cancer - that would never get to have that experience were it not for our funding of Sens Camperships.
Every kid deserves the right to be active and engaged and have a full and happy life growing up. The Ottawa Senators Foundation provides the resources and opportunities for kids in our community to be able to surpass their potential. We promote both physical and mental health for children and youth and invest in social recreation, healthcare and education initiatives benefiting children and youth.
That's why I am participating in the 24h Tremblant and that's why I am asking for your support. Monies raised will enable the Ottawa Senators Foundation to continue funding programs like Sens Summer Camperships, Roger Neilson House and other programs that will make life for thousands of kids in our community a little easier.
