A year ago, my wife Susan asked me to “buy bikes for kids,” and with the help of donors like you, and the Boys & Girls Club of Kawartha Lakes, I am proud to say that we have been able to do just that.
Just months after we announced the creation of the Susan DeNure Sports Fund, over 350 local kids in nine communities have had the opportunity to learn about cycling and bike safety. In addition, with some assistance from the Down to Earth bike shop in Lindsay, I have already presented bikes to kids in each program who have shown interest and promise in cycling in the hopes that they will continue with the sport.
In the fall, the Sports Fund offered basketball and ball hockey in these same nine communities, something that the Boys & Girls Club has had difficulty doing in the past without consistent funding.
As you can imagine, programs like these require equipment and dedicated people to coach the children. That is why I am asking you today to join me in supporting the work of the Susan DeNure Sports Fund and make a donation that will assist us in keeping these programs viable into the future.
I am confident that Susan would be pleased with we have been able to accomplish in such a short time, and I’d like to thank you for your support. Together, we can ensure that Susan’s legacy will continue for many generations of children.
