Maverick Family making a difference,

2018 / 05 / 23

Hi,


I am writing to you about Team Broken Earth, which I will be joining in November for a week of surgery and consultations in Haiti.  There are teams from all over Canada that travel to Haiti and other countries regularly, providing free surgical services to local patients who cannot afford to be treated otherwise.  The TBE website, for general information, is well worth visiting!   https://brokenearth.ca

As you can imagine, this type of trip is expensive. While I will be paying for my own travel, some members of the team need help, and the team needs equipment, supplies, and support. To this end, various fundraising activities have been planned, the first of which was a very successful Gala Ball, on March 24.

Our next major event is a Run and BBQ, to be held on Fathers’ Day, Sunday June 17, at the Pineview Golf Course in Ottawa. It is scheduled for late afternoon and evening, so your day will look like this:
- family brunch to celebrate Fathers’ Day
- afternoon run (you choose you own distance) at our FEEL IT IN YOUR BONES RUN to burn off the calories from brunch. http://www.feelitinyourbones.ca/
- BBQ and beers after run to put those calories right back where they really belong!

Here is where you come in, with two simple options:

1- get info on the run, and register as a runner or volunteer, by going to:

2- if you can’t make it, but still want to contribute to this humanitarian cause, please go to my personal fundraising page (all the $$ raised here will be for TBE, not me):


I hope you can make it to the event itself, it promises to be a fun one! Thank you for your support, and for helping to bring health care to Haiti! 

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE WITH FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND TEAMS!

Yours,

Philip
