South Delta Sunshine
Welcome to our Team Page! We are really excited about participating in The Great Canadian Splash for Kids and helping make dreams come true for children living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses
This is a virtual event created by The Sunshine Foundation and I'm hoping we can make it an unforgettable experience for everyone!
Our team goal is to have the largest team in Canada from Coast to Coast - and participating is simple - simply register you and your family as part of the team, enjoy some Sunshine on June 20th by going to your favourite water spot with your family and enjoy some Sunshine (Float down the River, Paddleboard on the Lake, go to the Ocean, tube, sit in your pool/hot tub - very easy!). I would like to get a video spliced together from Coast to Coast of the team enjoying the day.
In South Delta, we are going to have a Physically Distanced Gathering at Centennial Park and take a team picture/video at 1pm. I'm encouraging everyone to come out together between 11am - 2pm, bring the kids, a picnic lunch, and enjoy the day.
We may need some help from friends in getting participation in the Maritimes (I'm looking at you Dale and Rob C.), Manitoba (Alan), Saskatchewan (Dan), and Quebec...although if necessary we can probably get some of our Ottawa students to cross the border - if it's legal. If you do plan to do something in your community, let me know and I will connect you with others - we have lots of critical mass in Burlington, London, Sarnia, Waterloo, and the Lower Mainland...and maybe even a lake on the Kawarthas...
We have a team goal of raising $3000 in pledges for the event but we are hoping we can surpass that amount and raise even more funds through the collective efforts of our team members. Please know though that fundraising/donations are appreciated but optional - Goal #1 is to raise awareness for what the Sunshine Foundation does for Children with Disabilities. We’d love to see if we can make an impact with our participation. There will be challenges throughout the day and there are prizes and bragging rights at stake, but most importantly fun time with our families!
If you are unable to participate, please consider donating to the team by clicking the "Donate" button. Thanks again - looking forward to having a fun day!!
