As a member of the Edmonton Eskimos Cheer Team, I have the opportunity to volunteer with a variety of organizations within the community: Tim Hortons Camp Day and The Run Wild Marathon supporting the Zebra Centre. We also have the opportunity to volunteer with the Stollery Children’s Hospital, The Ronald McDonald House and the Kids With Cancer Society. Volunteering is a way for me to give back to the organizations that do so much for our community. Knowing I can have a positive impact on our community by volunteering is extremely fulfilling. Volunteering makes Canada a better place by bringing people together and building stronger communities. The sense of community is one of the many things that make Canada great.
