Welcome to Steph's Personal Page
What? On September 9th, 2017 I will take part in the 12th Annual Cedars CanSupport Dragon Boat Race & Festival in order to help raise awareness and much needed funds for cancer patients and their families at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC).
Who? All monies raised go directly to Cedars CanSupport, a division of the Cedars Cancer Foundation which aims to aid patients and their families who are currently undergoing cancer treatment. Cedars CanSupport provides free psychological, emotional, practical and financial support to cancer patients and their families being treated at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC).
Why? We all have been touched by the affects of cancer, whether personally or through loved ones. We know that it not only takes a toll on the body, but has huge emotional effects for all involved. The Cedars CanSupport Program is there to help. This will be my second time participating in this event with Randy’s Rowers. We will be racing and fundraising in honour of Randy Brown, who fought cancer fiercely himself, always supported others in need, loved his family whole-heartedly, and was always modest. He was one of the most determined, hard-working and positive people I have ever met. So, when I was approached to join this team 2 years ago, I was honoured and jumped onto the opportunity.
How? I along with my team and will be training this summer (once I'm back into training shape...) to improve our technique, synchronization, power strokes, and overall dragon boating team technique so that we will be victorious on Race Day in both our racing and fundraising efforts.
So… We hope you will help to support us and cheer us on at the beautiful Promenade Pére Marquette in Lachine on Saturday, September 9th. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and generosity.
