Raising funds to send kids to camp
This is the 22nd consecutive year that I have been raising money and the grand total raised over that time now stands at $112,828. This is a labour of love for me and is made that much easier by the people that donate year after year and always ask me when the next event will be so that they can support me again. Over 200 kids have received support to attend Camp Kawartha because of everyone’s generosity.
Thanks again to all.

All of the proceeds from this event will be directed towards Camp Kawartha’s sponsorship fund. Each year, with your help, we give deserving children who otherwise could not afford camp fees, the opportunity to participate in the magic of a summer camp or outdoor education visit.
As a child Warren was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Peterborough (Rotarian Will Cleveland) and was able to spend two summers at Camp Merrywood near Perth.
This meant a lot to him and his family, so in 1994 he took part in his first fundraising event to help Camp Kawartha and has not slowed down since. The first year, Warren raised a little over $700… a noteworthy achievement in itself. Twenty years later, he has raised over $100,000, enough to send hundreds of kids to camp. More than 8,000 individual donations helped to achieve this impressive total.
Warren begins his campaign in early spring. He is charming, persistent and completely persuasive. With a smile on his face, a glint in his eyes, Warren’s colleagues, his friends and even total strangers reach into their wallets and help kids in need.
In every way, Warren has paid forward the kindness he received as a child. It is a wonderful example to us all of how one good act can continue to inspire goodness, throughout the years.
