Parents of the 2010 McDonald’s Hopefuls
Welcome to the McDonald’s® Hopefuls’ parents blog where we provide you with testimonies from the parents of elite Canadian athletes who are striving to achieve their dreams. How do you help your child in reaching their goals? What sacrifices and investments does a family have to make to support a high level athlete? How do these parents support their children throughout the ups and downs of international competition and life in general? That is what Stephen and Fay Dionne, Janny and Joan Arendz and others will tell you in this blog. They are all members of the McDonald’s 2010 Hopefuls program, along with Christiane Despatie who is an ambassador for the program, which provides financial support to 26 Canadian winter athletes and their parents to help them achieve their dream. Follow their journey through the eyes of their parents!
