On June 23, I am returning as a participant to the Calgary Marathon of Sport. I'll be throwing my aging body onto the field of play for 6 sports in a single day. I'll be testing the hazy memories of my athletic prime against the creaking, popping, cracking reality of my current dad-bod.

This incredible event started in 2009 and in the 10 years since its inception has raised over $800,000 for Special Olympics athletes across Alberta. This event is part of a portfolio that raises over $1,750,000 annually for Special Olympics Athletes.

More importantly, it allows professionals from across Calgary the opportunity to play side by side with Special Olympics Athletes. I have personally seen the incredible changes that people undergo when they get a chance to meet these outgoing and inspiring athletes. They are the purest embodiment of what sport and athletics mean.

Please consider donating to my cause. Every little bit helps.
