I wanted to join the board of Variety Alberta because I believe so hard in everything they stand for. Too many children are left on the sidelines because we haven’t given them an opportunity to play safely in a welcoming environment. Everyone deserves to be included, and the “Just Like You” program is teaching kids and their families to be more compassionate and kind. I am also very excited to help launch the “Go Baby Go” program in Alberta – we want to give mobility to children who face those challenges. Being involved with Variety is allowing me to teach my son the value of giving back to his community. He is proud to be a volunteer and is excited for every event that he attends. The biggest reason why I joined Variety – the smiles! We make the world a better place and I’m so proud to be on this journey with a devoted group of people!
