July 2008 - Canadian Olympic Gold Medalist Malcolm Howard wants to make a real and lasting difference in Canada. He's set a goal of helping to raise one million dollars to help over 166 athletes so that they cabn focus on training and qualifying for the Winter Olympics. To this end he launched a viral website www.malcolmsmillion.com with the help of the staff at Firesnacks. The website is a critical tool in his campaign to help raise funds and awareness for Canadian athletes.
Malcolm Howard was a member of the Canadian Men’s Eight that won Gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The same eight that won Gold at the 2007 World Championships. He also won a Bronze medal in 2006 in Men's Pair at the WEorld Championships. He has represented Canada for the past 10 years, from the junior to the senior team. Malcolm plans on racing the men’s single at the London Olympics. Once he retires from rowing, he aspires to return to school to become a Medical Doctor.
The funds raised by Malcolm are directed to the Canadian Athletes Now Fund, the CAN Fund, is a not-for-profit organization devoted solely to raising funds and awareness for Canada's athletes. The Fund has been set up to help Canada's athletes ready for international summer and winter Games. Monies donated to the Fund are put directly into the hands of Canadian elite athletes to support their training, coaching, nutrition and living expenses in preparation for international competition. The mission is to underwrite the expenses of as many Canadian athletes as possible, as support is needed years before the medals can be obtained.
