As a marketing associate at Vango, I have to promote fencing and Vango but also to build the image of Vango being part of the community. Someone I know gave me the idea of doing a fundraiser for a good cause to get people in Vango at the same time as raise money for one of the community's charity. I decided to do a fundraiser for SickKids Foundation because they saved my mother's and aunt's lives when they were born. I started the promotion of the event, which was introducing fencing to people through fencing games and activities, in schools of the region and demos I was doing. I also found sponsors for the event: Advantage4Athletes, Boston Pizza and Running Free. The event went well and I raised a total of one thousand six hundred eighty dollars and gave it all to SickKids foundation at the neonatal department. I hope that I will be able to make a fundraiser like this at least once a year. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the event!
