Strathcona Nordics fundraiser includes inspirational speaker

The “Positive Rebel,” Michael Bortolotto, speaks at SNSC fundraiser

On Saturday, April 6, Michael Bortolotto, an inspiring, motivating, and educating speaker will address the crowd during a fundraising evening for the Strathcona Nordic Ski Club (SNSC). This event will take place at the Native Sons Hall, in Courtenay.

Bortolotto was born with cerebral palsy. He has pushed through life’s challenges with his “can do” attitude to overcome many physical, emotional and social obstacles. In his own words, Bortolotto “encourages and persuades his audience to rethink what they may believe is impossible to realizing anything is possible by being determined, persistent and focusing on the end result.”

In addition to Bortolotto’s presentation, there will be both a silent and live auction, fabulous musical entertainment by Comox Valley favourite Jenn Forsland, and a wine and cheese by Jessica Mann Catering.

All funds raised during this event will go towards the SNSC Dave Battison Memorial Athlete Development Fund. This fund was created for young cross country skiers as they pursue their athletic careers.

Special thanks to Farewell Harbour Lodge for their support.

Tickets for this wonderful evening are available at Ski Tak Hut in Courtenay, or by calling: 250-871-6767.
