I wish there were more words for saying THANKS! Wow… It truly is incredible to experience so much support. The journey to get to where we are today has been life changing! Thank you very much for everything leading up to and including the event hosted by the Cleveland Clinic last night in Toronto. Everything from an encouraging word to donations and attendance was received by Phil Brown and myself with heartfelt gratitude. I have grown up skiing with Phil FOREVER and am very proud of the efforts he and I have put forth so far to accomplish our dreams. Looking into our future, I am excited for the continuation of our adventure in pursuit of representing Canada in, but not limited to, the 2014 Sochi Winter Games! Best of luck for your season, Phil, you know I’m always using a little more cowbell when you’re on course!
I would like to send out a special thanks to John Danson for his time and efforts putting together such an event as this, Brian Williams for being our entertaining celebrity Master of Ceremonies and the Cleveland Clinic for being our gracious host! 
An athlete’s path is never one taken alone. 
Here is a funny spoof on the life of Amateur Athletes !
