In my quest to promote fencing, I also want to give a little something to the community. This is why I joined the Vango Toronto Fencing Association (non for profit organisation). Under this organisation, I run fencing demonstrations, in school for example, and promote fencing everywhere I can. I wanted to do a fundraising combining fencing promotion and helping the community. My idea was to give introduction classes and run small fencing related games to everyone that would come. Since I work at Vango, finding the facility for the event would be easy and cheap! While I was looking on the web for a cause or organisation, I remembered that SickKids Foundation saved the life of my mother and her sister when they were born! If it was not for SickKids, my mother (therefore me) wouldn’t be alive! I filled out the form on the SickKids' website and a couple of days later: I got approved and supported for the fundraising. So my plan was to organize a couple of games for the family, oriented on fitness, health and fencing, give fencing classes to everyone, make people fence, give prizes and oh yeah, raise money for SickKids Foundation! If you read this and would like to drop by to see what fencing is about or to donate a little pocket change for a great cause, please visit the Vango Games website: https://www.smore.com/pnqxk-vango-games. The event is Saturday June 20th for the whole family. Regular Classes will also be happening at the same time so that everyone that comes can have a look at real fencing classes! Come to Vango to do your part in helping kids in need!
