Fundraiser on Friday February 28th

We’ll beDreams Take Flight holding a fundraiser on Friday, February 28th at Fatboys Southern Smokehouse at 34 Murray Street in the Byward Market. This is a joint fundraiser with another climber for a different charity, so when you arrive, please make sure at the door they know you’re there for the Dreams Take Flight, the children’s charity.

The event starts at 8:00 pm, with the band on at 9:00.  A silent auction will be held, with some great items you’ll want to see.

The $10 ticket gets you in the door, and goes entirely to the charity.  If you can’t go but want to support Dreams Take Flight, you could go to and make a donation, or just buy a ticket anyway.  The charity will be grateful.

To buy tickets, or just ask me a question, email me at ac.ef1563242227iacs@1563242227ilik1563242227.

A New Year, Lots Happening

As the New Year breaks, I’m back to stair training, and have two fundraisers in the works for February. Looking forward to a training hike on Sunday in the Gatineau Hills.

Here’s What It’s All About

Behind all the preparations to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in April is a quest to support a fantastic charity, the Ottawa Chapter of Dreams Take Flight, which provides a magical experience for children facing difficult challenges in life.

Here’s a sample of what you’re supporting when you donate to Dreams Take Flight Ottawa through my donation link on this site.


In April 2014 I  joined a group climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Dreams Take Flight, a charity which takes children with physical, mental and social challenges on a one day fun filled trip from Ottawa to Florida for a day at the Magic Kingdom.

My preparations, why I did it, who I did it for, and who I did it with are set out on the pages linked above.  On the climb pages I’ve set out a journal of the experience.

I want to thank all those friends and family whose support allowed me to complete this challenge successfully and raise $7,535 for Dreams Take Flight, more than half again my original target.
