Shereen Chao | CAN Pro-Am Player Fundraising Page
I am excited to be playing in the 2020 CAN Pro-Am Hockey Tournament!
Held January 24-26, the tournament will raise vital funding for Canucks Autism Network (CAN).
CAN is a provincial leader in sports & rec programming for individuals & families living with autism. They are committed to promoting autism acceptance, understanding & inclusion through community engagement & training initiatives across BC.
This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart as a psych major. I believe that the most powerful way to remove the stigma of all those afflicted with mental illness from society is awareness and inclusion. CAN not only fosters inclusion but incorporates sports and recreation for those living with autism; I am a firm believer that the camaraderie and exercise of being involved with sports is pertinent in the mental and physical well-being of each and every individual.
By participating in the CAN Pro-Am, I will be helping to ensure that thousands of individuals with autism can also enjoy the thrill of sports province-wide!
Please join me in making a difference.
