November 20th, 2019 is the date of the eleventh edition of the Celebrate Life, a fundraising event for young people living with cancer supported by the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation.
This event has been a success year after year and I am very impressed to see how many business men and women get behind the project to ensure its success. I am also moved to see how members of our Ambassador’s Circle always get involved despite extremely busy schedules and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. What I know of this foundation and the people that support it is that we all admire the spirit of freedom that inspires the adventurer; we understand the desire to go out into nature which provides us with many challenges. Above all, we love these young people who are struggling to meet the greatest challenge of their lives, overcoming cancer.
Through therapeutic adventure expeditions, the On the Tip of the Toes Foundation helps young cancer patients to regain confidence in their strength, their courage, and their potential. Supervised by experts in the medical community and in wilderness leadership, these young people undergo a real transformation. They come out confident and determined. Since the beginning of the program, more than 500 young people have participated in one of our therapeutic adventures. Through these participants, we have touched the lives of tens of thousands of people: parents, siblings, friends, and others. Indeed, the benefits of our expeditions are not limited to the participants; the benefits extend to all those who support these young people.
Next November 20th, I hope you will join us to celebrate life. Other young people are impatiently waiting for a chance to participate in these great adventures. Your support for this cause will be a key to the success of several upcoming projects. Thank you for your generosity and I hope to see you there.
