Good Luck Rolling the Island Paul!!

Won't be long now Paul, have a safe journey!

On November 4, 5, 6th I aspire to become the first person to roller ski Prince Edward Island from tip to tip. This three day excursion will begin Friday, Nov 4 in North Cape in western PEI, and hopefully conclude by late Sunday afternoon in East Point, PEI, a total of some 285 kilometres. I am excited to be combining this personal challenge with a fundraising initiative for Right To Play,

Please lend your support as together we help Right To Play perform their work to change children's lives for the better. My goal is to fundraise $10,000 - this amount will provide 100 children with weekly sport and play programming!
