The Morning of the race

Dear Adventure Race Gods,
Could you make it rain any harder?  I am a fairweather adventure racer....

The Eve before the race!

I am definitely not ready:  no camera...no milk for coffee....no eggs for scrambled eggs....sigh.

To BC Teachers in my PLN! Job Action Blues?

JOB ACTION GETTING YOU DOWN?

I suggest that you use all of that EXTRA time you will be saving to not only do as Ms. Lambert states:

“I want to reassure parents that their children's teachers will be focused on excellence in our classrooms. Because we won't be doing all the many bureaucratic and administrative tasks that have been added onto our jobs, we'll have more time to teach, to offer individual attention to students, and to keep in close communication with parents,” to raise money for Canuck Place,Lambert said. I think that is what she meant.

Click on a picture, take a look, ask your class if they would like to help!

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!


I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?

Names:

Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
