To raise awareness and funds for National Energy Action, to help fight fuel insecurity in the UK, and Thrive Youth, to make an impact on the lives of young people in Canada facing barriers to success.

individuals like John that we're able to make a significant impact on the lives of young people across the country.

With a career spanning nearly four decades in the finance and insurance industries, John has always been moved by a desire to give back. "I hope to generate enough money to at least help some of the thousands of children in Canada that need it most right now” said John. "[I] want to give something back to the millions of people that have not been as fortunate as myself due to no fault of their own."
