I’m Stepping it Up for Science because…

Two of my passions in life are science and nature.  I've signed up to walk a full marathon to raise money for Scientists in School, a charity which allows me to share these passions with students across Canada.  As a bonus, I get to be outside enjoying nature and perhaps get a bit of birding in:)  I will be hiking at 4 different Provincial Parks over the month of October.  I'm hoping to raise enough money to deliver a hands-on interactive workshop to one whole classroom.  Thank you for your support!

I’m taking part in the 2022 TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon and helping Scientists in School raise $24,000 for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) enrichment workshops across Canada.

Your donation will help bring hands-on STEM workshops to children in low income, rural and remote communities from coast to coast, giving them the opportunity to BE a scientist in school today, and BECOME the researchers, engineers and technologists we need for tomorrow. 

Every donation makes a difference for young scientists!

  • $27helps us pack neat goodies into mini science bags, one for each student in the class
  • $52helps us buy the neat stuff for those mini science bags -- from salt to string to soap to stir sticks -- so each student can experiment

  • $6,500enables us to Adopt-a-School, delivering hands-on workshops to every class and student in a low-income school
