My Message

I am participating in the Victory Charity Ball to raise money for the Pinball Clemons Foundation Ambassador School Program.

I went to the Victory Charity Ball 2 years ago and was so inspired that there were regular people that took themselves out of their comfort zone and learned to box all for a great cause. I  felt like if they can do it, I can do it too! I met Pinball many years ago and was blown away by his enthusiasm and excitement about helping those in need. It was contagious and I knew I    wanted to help out anyway I could. 

Ive always been an athlete and have played many sports like baseball, basketball and football but over the last 5 years Brazilian jiu jitsu is the sport that I have become obsessed with. I also enjoy performing stand up comedy and travelling with my beautiful wife and daughter.

A wise man once said “If you want to show me a great person, don’t show me anything about records, awards, money and power. Show me what that person has done for someone else.” ~ Pinball Clemons

Im just trying to do my part, so I will fight for the youth and for The Ambassador Program.

“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 “SpeakOut” 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 grade 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.
