(January 20, 2006) - CanDeal Inc. takes great pride in announcing our support of the “See You In Torino Fund” (www.seeyouintorino.com). “The Fund represents an excellent opportunity to invest in our dedicated Canadian athletes,” says Jayson Horner, President and CEO of CanDeal. “We are pleased that we are able to participate in this worthwhile cause and support our amateur athletes as they strive to win gold for Canada on the world stage.”
Since 1997, the signature “See You In Fund” has been providing direct financial support to our Canadian amateur athletes. This direct support helps to provide adequate resources for training and competing at an elite level. Mr. Horner said, “It is an investment in Canadian pride and a manner in which to nurture our future sports heroes.”
The See You In Torino Fund provides an opportunity to “adopt an athlete”. The athlete that CanDeal was excited to hear we adopted is Vicky Sunohara, a veteran member of the Gold Medal winning Canadian Women’s Hockey Team. Vicky was born in 1970 in Toronto, Ontario. She is a two time Olympic medalist, having won an Olympic silver medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan and an Olympic gold medal in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, USA. In addition to her Olympic success, she has won several medals for Canada in various international ice hockey tournaments.
