My Message

Thank you for helping with a donation. This is my second year in the tournament and it's really great to be involved with such an amazing cause. For those of you that don't know me, this cause has a very personal meaning for me. My mother was Cree and grew up in a northern Alberta indigenous community. I'm quite proud of my mother's story and her ability to overcome some of the challenges that faced her as an indigenous youth. She overcame many obstacles, became a city police officer, managed and operated numerous businesses, and most importantly helped me realize how important community is. 

This initiative is so important to our indigenous youth in creating and fostering a culture of education and introducing them to worlds they wouldn't otherwise be able to know. Sometimes a step up is the most important gift you can give and this particular program does just that. Make sure you watch the videos and see the genuine excitement in the faces of the youth that are the benefactors.

Remember, you are playing defense in a charity tournament. How about a little more "Coffey", a little less "McSorely", for a change.
