On July 15, I am participating in an all-day fundraiser called Marathon of Sport. All funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.
The picture above is of me and Alex Carruthers taken at the SONS Summer Games held on June 16-18 at St FX University. I help run the Provincial Bocce Tournament and although every year I am exhausted at the end of the weekend, it is too much fun to not be involved the next year!
This year an athlete came up to me and asked if she could get a tylenol for one of her fellow athletes. I told her to send one of her coaches over and I would talk to them. She immediately replied that she was a coach. I explained, "Well, Stacey, I must have been mistaken because I thought you were an athlete. Do you know that if you are a coach then you won't be eligible to win a medal." She immediately confessed, "No, Mr. Bocce King sir, I am an athlete, I am an athlete!" It was a good thing because I knew something that Stacey didn't...she was the recipient of the Gold medal in our top female division.
I participate in Motionball Marathon of Sport to help athletes like Stacey to continue to win medals. Please help by sponsoring me in this event. You will immediately receive a tax receipt.
