About Jordan

Jordan Strickland inspires the fourth Annual “Jordan’s Run the Runway” run and walk event at Diamond Aircraft and the London International Airport. Thanks to all of you….. old and new friends, family, and others connected to us and each other through Jordan, who continue to made this event such a success! Together we have raised over $252,000 for YMCA Camp Queen Elizabeth. Jordan would SO love this party!

Jordan loved new adventures, and he was not afraid to try anything. One of the things he loved most in life was going to the YMCA Camp Queen Elizabeth on Beausoleil Island, where he attended many summers as a camper, and nine years as a volunteer counsellor.

CQE terrain is not what would be considered easy to traverse, and was a challenge to Jordan’s mobility, but he always managed to get anywhere he needed to with the support of the many amazing young men and women there. It is doubtful that he missed any opportunities and his enthusiasm was contagious! Rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, body surfing on the rapids, hiking, swimming, out tripping…. he looked forward to and was a part of all of it. Because of the Y’s and CQE's inclusive philosophy, Jordan and others who may have physical or other challenges have always been welcomed to share the same awesome camp experience as any other kid, with whatever support it takes to make that happen. Many, many children and future camp leaders who couldn’t typically afford to go are supported by the Strong Kids Campaign to attend CQE, and we want this to continue as part of Jordan’s story for many years to come. Jordan would have turned 31 this year, and we are so grateful for the many friends he met over the years, and who he introduced to us. Thank you so much for Running the Runway to remember our amazing Jordan, and also for his CQE and Siskinds families and friends.
