Why do I ski? I ski for the young children who never in a million years should be dealing with that they are. I ski to make sure every single child has a chance to grow up great. I ski to make a real difference in the lives of thousands of children. I ski to be a game changer so the Sens Foundation can help the:
- 1 in 5 children who live in poverty in our Nation's Capital; many of whom don't have access to after-school or recreation programs for various reasons. Kids like Pierre-Alexandre
families of Roger's House - a paediatric residential hospice with respite and end of life care and supports who has provided more than 20,000 days of care and has had over 3,000 admissions since opening just like Olivia's .
Most of us cannot really imagine the challenges these children face – be it dealing with a disease or special needs – every day of their lives. Our challenge pales in comparison: just 24 short hours of effort and fun… all for a wonderful cause.
Funds raised from 24h Tremblant will help the Sens Foundation:
- Continue to give children and youth access to free recreation and activities on SENS RINK throughout Ottawa and Gatineau.
Give more than 1,500 kids an unforgettable experience at summer camps across the region.
Give families of children with life-limiting illnesses a home-away-from-home at Roger’s House. .
