My Message

In 2010 I joined the C&O Apparel team in walking 60KM for fundraising for Weekend to End Women’s Cancer and I thank you again for sponsoring me at that time.  I have just found another meaningful cause that I would like you to join me, sponsoring me and/or walking with me. 

This time I am fundraising for the Run for H2O on Saturday, June 16 at Riverfront Park in South Vancouver. I choose to walk 5KM.


In March, my son Anthony visited Talaxcoc, Guatemala and spent a week there to learn more about the people there.  The village is on the mountain and there is no water supply.  Each day villagers carry jars of water filled from the river and bring it back up their mountain village for their daily use. Anthony tried out one day and he said the jar when filled with water was heavy.  But this is their normal routine!  Anthony said he did not shower for the 6 days he was there, because he could not trouble the villagers to bring the precious river water up the mountain for him.  He is a witness of how difficult life is without water.


Can you imagine there are people who grew up without water in their homes!  We are very lucky to live in Canada.  Water is plentiful here. There is no worry about contaminated water supply; and I have never imagined how inconvenient life is if I turn on the tap and there is no water coming out from the tap permanently.  To me, a shower is not a luxury.  And washing my dishes with running water is never a concern. 


Please follow this link if you want to see photos of Anthony and read more of his story: http://pentasport.ca/run-for-h2o/  

Please join me in helping to make a dream come true, to build a direct water supply system for the families in Talaxcoc, Guatemala. When every one of us gives out a little effort, it will very soon make a whole village of people smile!
