Brendan Weeks is our October Community Leader

We want to congratulate Brendan Weeks as the #MLSEFdnLeader for October.
 
Most 13-year-olds during the summer are playing with friends, watching TV, going to camp or playing video games. Brendan, on the other hand, spent his summer creating a fundraiser to give back.
 
Brendan is on the Grade 8 honour roll at his school in Toronto and has been privileged enough to play sports with the Mooredale Community House league for football and soccer. Brendan knows many kids the same age as him do not receive the same opportunities to play sports, so it was his idea to create a fundraiser.
 
Realizing there was an opportunity to engage his father’s client at his place of work, Brendan set up a booth every Thursday outside the store and sold raffle tickets to raise money for MLSE Foundation. His passion and dedication to making a difference helped him reach his fundraising target of $500.
 
“I'm very happy that he has an interest in MLSE Foundation. He's volunteered twice at the ACC already and has his sights set on being part of the team someday,” says Kevin, Brendan’s father.
 
Thanks to Brendan and his hard work, we can continue improving the lives of kids through sport.
