2016 Terry Fox Run a Huge Success

As far as global Canadian icons go Terry Fox stands in a league of his own. Terry’s Marathon of Hope represents how a single individual can turn a moment of personal tragedy into inspiration for generations of people.

This year ABC celebrated Terry’s legacy on the occasion of the 36th anniversary of his Marathon of Hope.

ABC has been participating in the Terry Fox run for over a decade raising over fifteen thousand dollars to support Terry’s cause. This year we had 35 participants and raised $1, 500 through personal contributions and a fund-raising Bowling event. It was wonderful to see the large turnout and enthusiastic participation from our members!

It is the participation and engagement from members that makes an event like this worthwhile and successful. We feel very proud to see the engagement from the community we have built through ABC.

Together we are making a difference.

Thank You

How are we managing “Back to School”?

This is the busy time for all of us, kids are back to school and we are in full swing in preparation for Diwali celebration. I found some interesting tips and thought to share with you.

1. Get organized!

If you want to be more organized allow your kids to do the same by giving them a task or two they can own. This not only frees up a parent’s time for other things, but also, and more importantly, opens up the opportunity for positive reinforcement within the family. “High five, ” “Great job, ” — words of affirmation mean kids thrive! When kids thrive, the house is calmer, when the house is calmer even the hardest tasks seem much easier to handle. Do you see where I’m going with all this?

2. Turn school supply chore day into a day you all look forward to!

Always buy extra and keep them in the school supply box! Which leads to the next tip…

3. Do it once — Use it twice!

Surviving the back-to-school season, when it comes to making dinner, can be as easy as training your brain to think a little differently. When a recipe requires to finely chop one onion,  chop two. By training brain that it only takes an extra minute (because all my equipment is already out) this not only saves cutting the onion next time, but the clean up too!

4. Spicing it up!

Some of our most loved family meals require a whole bunch of spice. My butter chicken requires a lot of different spices, but it’s a family favorite. Add 1 Tbsp into the pot…1 Tbsp into a snack bag….1 tsp into the pot…1 tsp into the bag and so on with all the dried spices.

5. Bye, Bye ho-hum lunch — Hello lunch list!

We admit that lunch-making is both mentally and physically exhausting trying to come up with new ideas. Try labeling a piece of paper LUNCH LIST and place it in a central location in your home. Make sure there is a pen close by. Ask your family to give you single item suggestions for what they love in their lunch.

6. Let the clock keep you organized!

Finally I suggest you set the clock 10 minutes ahead as we did (shhhhh)!! This little leg up on time simply takes the edge off the overwhelming list of to-dos your first week back. Seeing that parents have more than themselves to worry about, it’s always a good idea to anticipate a few little bumps in even the best-executed plan. That extra 10 minutes seemed to be just the right amount of time to help me ease into my new fall routine!

Enjoy “Back to School”!!
