Skate for A Cure 2009

Last year I signed up for the Skate for A Cure on the Vancouver Blogger Team and we raised funds for childhood cancer research through the Michael Cuccione Foundation and the BC Childrens’ Hospital Foundation.

I will once again be raising funds for this amazing cause, and in doing so I’ll earn a spot on the ice at GM Place so I can go have a skate (for a cure) when all is said and done.

I’m hoping to actually make it to the ice since I was called away to Toronto for the Test the Nation TV show last year during the event (and John had to take my place with Linden).

If you would like to donate to my Skate for A Cure campaign, you can find my profile and donation page here.

  1. You’re all about the causes!!! That’s very noble of you!!! I hope that all of these charities greatly benefit from the exposure you give them.

  4. I know this sounds like a petty question, but does one get a tax receipt w/ the donation?

  5. Miss604 says:

    Yep, from the BC Childrens’ Hospital… I believe any amount $10 or over (or maybe $20) the info should be on their website.

  6. Cool… I just found it (very last FAQ here: charitable receipts for anything over $5. 😉 Made a small donation – hope you get to $300! 😉 Looking forward to hearing about it on the Crazy Canucks podcast. 🙂
