Thanks/ Support SSW

Many wonderful individuals & organizations have helped me as an athlete & SSW as a website- to all of you who have helped and supported me & SSW, thank you very much- I could put logos here, but I’ll let the words speak for themselves.

SSW Design
I would like to thank Eric Gee and Andrew Love, who over the years, have giving me specific web design knowledge & tips as well as general inspiration. Much of what you see here can be, in some form, traced back to them.

Financial Support
It is difficult being an athelte when there is little formal support. I would like to thank Canadian Athletes Now Fund for their financial support for non-Olympic athletes (see Thank You CAN-Fund) as well as for how they mange to bring Canadian athletes from virtually all summer & winter Olympic & many non-Olympic sports together to work for a common cause.

If you’re considering donating money to SSW, please do so. If you’re looking for an additional group to support, consider Canadian Athletes Now Fund. They support and know athletes of the highest caliber- Olympic medalists- and the funding goes directly to the athletes.

Logistical Support
My most direct supporters & advocators include Mike Murray, Wayne Burrett, Morgane Echardour, and my mother. Thank you. Your support & guidance are worth more than you will ever possibly know. You are helping build a better athlete and a better person.

There are numerouse family members, friends, team/ club mates, and anonymous people who have also helped me become who & what I am today and who & what I will be tomorrow.

Thank you to the Canadian Sport Centre Ontario for putting me in touch with a professional and knowledgeable array of doctors, therapists, councilors, nutritionists, & more.

The Cleveland Health Clinic has an amazing office on the 30th floor of the BCE building in the heart of Toronto. The view from their location is to say the least, stunning. And their services is even better than the view- thank you.

Dr. Sunita Joshi– kicking in the dental care when I have no insurance or health plan- thank you.

Contact me by leaving a message/ comment  if you are interested in donating, helping, supporting, sponsoring, or purchasing ad-space on SSW. Thanks to everyone supporting Speed Skate World and my dreams of racing and reporting from the front line and beyond.

Fun-Raising Drives
The first Speed Skate World fundraising drive was held in June 2008. It lasted one week. Funds that are raised went to help with racing expenses, website expenses, equipment, and travel to ice & roller events for racing & reporting purposes. The 2008 SSW Fund-Raising drive yielded $700.

The 2009 SSW Fund-Raising Drive was held May 10th to th 16th. With about 1000-hours of labour and love going into SSW each year, this provided SSW readers & fans a chance to give back to & support SSW. The 2009 SSW Fund-Raising Drive brought in $260.

Official Canada Suit
The Official Canada Suits can now be purchased from Il Peloton. The Official Canada Suit was one of two winning designs in the Design Canada! Contest.  $20 from each suit sold will be donated to the 2008 Canadian World Team athletes. Canadian World Team athletes are responsible for the costs of representing Canada at the World Roller Speed Skating Championships. The costs can run upwards of $4000 per athlete.
