Steve Sauve Floats for Dreams!
Steve Sauve's Page
Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. Kelly and I are participating in the Sunshine Foundation's Great Splash for Kids on June 20th.
I joined the Sunshine Foundation as a board member. I knew that I wanted to get involved with an organization that had a personal significance to me. My inspiration for joining the board was our niece, Keira. She was born in 2006 with Cerebral Palsy and defied the odds from the moment she was born! Keira and her family faced some incredible challenges but they faced them together. That little girl had a smile that could light up a room and a giggle that made all the men in her life (of course including me, her favourite uncle) do her bidding. Keira fought for 9 and a half years with the support of her family to live an incredibly full life. She was blessed to have community members fundraise so that she and her family could experience a dream vacation. When I learned that the Sunshine Foundation helps make dreams come true for children across Canada living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses I knew that this was the right cause for me to get involved with.
Normally we would be participating in the Sunshine Float for Dreams fundraiser at this time, but due to the COVID-19 measure that had to be take, this event has been postpones and with a COVID-19 friendly event.
We need your support more than ever!
Raising funds for life-changing Sunshine Dreams is now more important than ever.
In this isolating time, we must recognize the challenge that vulnerable kids and their families are facing right now while living with severe physical disabilities. Even in the absence of a global pandemic, Dr. Marc Fadel, Adolescent Psychiatrist, shares that “children who spend their lives in treatment are vulnerable to isolation, and serious mental health complications like chronic depression and anxiety frequently arise “- and this pandemic only makes it worse. For many of these kids, a Sunshine Dream experience is the only hopeful thing they have and plays an essential role in their health management. They need you more than ever.
