My trip to Toronto culminated in an amazing night hosted by Jane Roos and the generous folks at CAN Fund. Myself and eight other current Olympians, and numerous past Olympians were treated to a beautiful night of food, drink, opera, Brian Melo and art. The art was all donated by athletes and the whole collection sold for a total of twenty-three thousand. All of which was put into the fund to help other athletes like myself and many young up and comers.
I can’t express the importance of the fund. Its far more than just monetary support, it’s a community run by people who truly care about athletes and their well-being. They help on so many levels by helping to empower athletes and give us the opportunity to live our dreams.
A big thanks to Partizia, Conrad and of course, Jane Roos the founder of the fund.
