SSW Fund-Raising Drive Day 1- Because You Love To Visit SSW (…And It’s Mother’s Day!)

Over the next 7 days, I will (try to) find compelling reasons for why you should support SSW’s fund-raising drive.

You may be asking yourself Why should I support the drive?‘.

Here’s my answer; SpeedSkateWorld.com is one of your favoured, important, frequent, or enjoyed online destinations. You visit SSW on a regular basis and you appreciate all the work that goes into maintaining the site. In short, you love to visit SSW.

Also, what better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than through your generous support!

If you prefer, you can click on the picture below of my (very nice) legs. The picture was taken by Robert Chan earlier today in Toronto at the RSO Series #1.

Here’s To You, Sport Moms

This is a great article for Mother’s Day- Here’s to you, sport moms.

This week I asked athletes to share stories of their awesome sport moms. A collection of impassioned letters flowed in to my inbox — and they’re still arriving.

So now, like a true mom, I’m feeling guilty because I can’t print them all. Everyone’s stories are different, yet they all agree: “My mom is the best mother ever.”

Priscilla Lopes-Schliep, 2008 Olympic bronze medallist, hurdles, Mom — Sharon Lopes

“One thing growing up I remember my mom telling me was “everything happens for a reason, and nothing before it’s time.” It’s funny because I find myself saying the same thing when I go to schools and give motivational speeches.”
