Welcome to Alison's Personal Page
COVID continues to keep the world flipped on its head, so sadly the Gunwhale Bobbers will not be taking to the waters of Mooneys Bay this June.
Poverty creates barriers. Christie Lake Kids helps our city's most vulnerable children overcome them. COVID has impacted the vulnerable populations of Ottawa hard this year, and the effects on children are huge.
Although camp won't look the same this year, they are resurrecting the Camp In A Box this summer and hoping for some daytime activities as deemed safe by public health. CLK needs funds to make this happen. This is why I am joining the virtual Canoe for Kids this year.
Christie Lake Camp was a huge part of my summers growing up. It is still going strong and helping many kids from Ottawa. I am happy to be able to jump into a boat again with the Gunwhale Bobbers in Canoe for Kids this year! We will be racing war canoes on Mooney's Bay to raise funds to help send financially underprivaledged kids from Ottawa to camp where they will learn swimming, campcraft and canoeing. More imporantly, they will build confidence and feel success that will follow them for the rest of their lives.
By making a donation to me, you will provide a camp experience to hundreds of youth this summer that otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend. Attending summer camp is an incredibly rewarding experience and these kids really need your support. Past campers, now successful in life, credit Christie Lake Kids with changing their lives.
Every little bit helps. Please make a donation today and help me to reach my goal of sending more kids to camp!
