It recently came to my attention that Eric Sprott of Sprott Investment management has committed to donating $100,000 to the Canadian Athletes Fund for every gold medal earned by a Canadian at the 2010 Winter Olympics!!!
How exciting is that??!!! Incredible that someone would come to the table and not only support the athletes who are currently competing (he donated $210,000 for current athletes) but also rewarding performances for the benefit of all Canadian athletes.
In his quote, Eric Sprott expressed his excitement to invest in our athletes and their pursuit of excellence. This is such an inspiring act of generosity and really builds on the Canadian spirit of these games.
The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver are the people's games and it was so inspiring to watch the opening ceremony knowing the entire nation came together to create a masterpiece in our history.
If this inspires you then follow this link to make a donation! Athletes Can is where your funds will be directed and they will assist various athletes in funding their path to achieving their Olympic Dreams!
