Dare Update!

September 18, 2009

We at the Foundation have been totally inspired by the original, thoughtful, extraordinary Dares that Canadians are taking on.  Below is a sampling but to read more, visit our Featured Dares page.

In Toronto, Carol will paddlesurf the Toronto Harbour every day between October 17 and 25.  Brrrr – thank you Carol!


Nine-year old Esther has always wanted to go to the top of the CN Tower… and this year she is going to get there, one step at a time.

From now until October, Esther will take the stairs everywhere she goes until she has climbed 1,776 steps – the equivalent of a journey up the CN Tower. She wants to raise $1 per stair and will visit the CN Tower when she’s completed her Dare.  Thank you Esther and best of luck!

While in Vancouver, Melissandre and Meghan will bike from Vancouver to Seattle on the weekend of October 16 – October 18, in other words, 256 km over two and a half days. The girls promise to overcome all obstacles – rain, earthquake, forest fire…you name it! They will bike through it.
