My Message

I am participating in the Victory Charity Ball to raise money for the Pinball Clemons Foundation Ambassador School Program. I have always been fascinated by Boxing/MMA, and finally in my late thirties decided to take up the sport out of the famed club BAAC in Burlington, Ontario. The mental and physical demand has been like nothing else I have experienced.  

At this stage in my career I have the capability to support such an amazing event as the Victory Charity Ball. I have always been involved in fundraising doing multiple events for MS & Cancer with various long-distance cycling events raising close to $10,000 for the causes.  The Pinball Clemons Foundations is close to home as education is the key to lifelong success, and no one is more deserving than the youth this Foundation supports.

This time around I will lay it all on the line and have committed to raising over $6,000!

The Ambassador Program is an alternative school program designed to assist youth, who have dropped out of high school, to reengage with learning. The aim is to help them complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, gain valuable life skills, and successfully move into a post-secondary school environment. 

The program currently services 15 full time youth, and 4 part-time youth, with one Teacher and one Child and Youth Worker.  Students work at their own pace on academic courses and participate in a life skills program which focuses on skill building for youth to live independently and successfully. These life skills include learning the basics of cooking and nutrition, physical health and wellness, financial literacy, and personal life management.

Students also engage in community support activities, volunteering, and a program called the “Speak Out” where they travel to grade 7 and 8 classrooms across the city of Toronto and deliver a “stay in school” presentation based on their own life story and life choices.  Ambassador Students have spoken to nearly 30 000 grades 7-8 students over the past 10 years.  The core philosophy of the Ambassador Program is that every student can learn, achieve their goals, and realize their potential regardless of their socio-economic status, upbringing, or experiences.
