A Celebration of Excellence in Athletics - Thank You from the President
On behalf of the Athletics Canada Foundation, I want to thank you for joining us on Saturday August 11th, for what was a great day at the track and a lively cocktail reception saluting Canadian Excellence in Athletics.
I hope you enjoyed the stories our athletes on the panel shared that night. Thanks to Perdita, Andre, Damian, Bruny, Mark, Marissa, Molly and Alysha, who were willing to be so candid and inspire us with their personal triumphs. However, it's important to remember that these stories all had to start somewhere. Performance and commitment to achieving the highest honours in the world of Athletics can inspire the youth of today to start – and stay – active, and the Athletics Canada Foundation’s mission is to sustain that system.
Obviously, we can’t do it alone. Everyone can help in different ways. We hope you will.
Thank you for supporting our cause, our athletes, and most important, thank you for being a part of our athletics community. If you would like to hear more from us and about our work, be sure to visit our recently launched website at www.athleticscanadafoundation.org .

Many thanks again,
