Wow what a great day we had for my Kickoff event to tell everyone about my awesome plan to break the Guinness World Record for the longest line of lemonade stands in a row!

We decided to do 11 because we wanted to honour and remember all the […]

What a special night for me and my Mom! It was an absolutely incredible experience, and I am so inspired by everything the David Foster Foundation is doing to save the lives of children in Canada and around the world!

But we were determined to set up the stand any way, and we were incredibly hopeful that the rain would clear up. As we were all (volunteers included) huddled under the one tent we had put […]
