It was quite a day. Firstly, Ingrid played ping pong tonight after some pizza and watching a little NBA action. That doesn’t usually happen, but Beau and Cooper (more of Chris’ gang from Brookswood) were over and she was right in there. Max captured the action on camera. Good games by all.
Earlier this afternoon we got some amazing news from Simon Fraser University. The CHRIS FRIESEN MEMORIAL AWARD FUND has reached and surpassed the $20,000 goal!!! This is amazing news as it means Chris’ fund is now set for life and will continue to provide opportunity for lacrosse playing SFU students for decades to come. THANK YOU ALL! What an amazing accomplishment. This is WITHOUT, the dollars raised from the lacrosse sticks and AC’s incredible donation of proceeds from Love Shines which are still to be added and will continue to help the fund grow. Wow. We are humbled, excited and are looking forward to making the first presentation of the Chris Friesen Memorial Award in January 2011. From wristbands to cheques to thoughts and prayers you have all contributed to making this award a legacy fund. We are incredibly amazed at the support and generosity. THANK YOU!!!
Now, let’s get back to some ping pong!
