Canadian Teen Creates SUP Fundraiser in Honour of Friends 2015
Summer 2014 I created a stand up paddle fundraiser to raise money for brain cancer research in honour of two friends I lost in 2012. Julia Turner was 15 when she died of a brain tumour, and Lynn Lambert was 37. I paddled 10km down the Welland Canal on Thurs. July 10th and raised over $4000!! Anyway I am doing this event again for summer 2015 on Thursday July 23rd and I would love to share my story on Ellen!!! :) The event last year was fantastic, I had over 100 people come out to celebrate Julia and Lynns lives. They were two amazing people that put others before themselves always and I want others to keep on remembering how they changed the lives of everyone in my hometown. Their lives were remarkable and I am honoured that I can do an event like this to keep their memories alive. The name of this event is called 'On Board' and for more information you can go and check out the Facebook page. So mark your calendars and come out to the Welland Canal on Thursday July 23rd to remember Julia and Lynn!
