"I was blown away by my kid coach Shane who showed me what true courage is." -Tony Dilwari

"How can something be this much fun and be so good for the soul? In 2016, I had the privilege of being a High Hopes Challenger. What a blast! Not only did I get to challenge myself (good thing I’m not scared of heights!), I was blown away by my kid coach Shane who showed me what true courage is. Shane’s determination was palpable; inspiring and motivating me that day and the days since the event. If you get a chance to be a Challenger, do it. You won’t regret it." - Tony Dilwari

"My time working with my kid coach and the staff at Kids Cancer Care are memories that I shall cherish for a lifetime!" - Bruce Robertson

"In 2014 I was asked to participate in Kids Cancer High Hope Challenge. Being a Camp Kindle volunteer the year before with my wife, we knew the importance and how highly impactful the Foundation has had on the Calgary cancer community, as well as the numerous kids and volunteers it has touched.

The High Hopes Challenge gave me an opportunity to connect with a “kid coach” who had lived with this terrible disease. Together we worked as a team, facing the many fun challenges the staff at the foundation placed upon us at Camp Kindle! The High Hope Challenge also allowed me to reach out to my numerous business associates and peers to financially support this wonderful foundation. Raising money forKids Cancer Care was the easy part, the fun part was teaming up with my kid coach to challenge ourselves to some terrifying but exhilarating situations throughout the day at Camp Kindle.

During your life you create many memories; my time working with my kid coach and the staff at Kids Cancer Care are memories that I shall cherish for a lifetime!" - Bruce Robertson

"Mallory inspired me to participate and to push myself beyond my own silly adult boundaries." -Crispin Arthur

"It was an honour and, more than that, a privilege to be asked to be a High Hopes Challenger. I teamed up with Mallory, my Kid Coach. Mallory is the definition of inspiration: she battled this awful disease and came out the other side victorious. Now a lively, energetic and tenacious young woman, I knew we would make a formidable team. At the High Hope Challenge, Mallory inspired me to participate and to push myself beyond my own silly adult boundaries. I made it to the top of the climbing wall... because of Mallory. I completed the ropes course... because of Mallory. And I wore a goofy costume and sang a funny camp song... because of Mallory. We do these things because our Kid Coaches, each of whom have faced true adversity in their young lives, inspire us to do them. And thank goodness for that!" - Crispin Arthur
