Wade Belak Memorial Charity Drive - Over $1,500 raised so far towards goal of $3,333!

In the midst of the grieving after learning of Wade Belak's death earlier this week an idea sprouted in the Nashville blogging community that has resulted in the creation of the Wade Belak Memorial Charity Drive to benefit the charity Wade had selected to receive his proceeds from the "Battle of the Blades" show on CBC.

Quote:
Before his unexpected passing, Wade Belak was scheduled to join the next season of Battle of the Blades, Canada’s answer to Dancing with the Stars. On the show, a group of former NHL players join professional figure skaters in a figure skating competition – all of the prize money goes to charity. Wade Belak’s selected charity was the Tourette Syndrome Clinic at Toronto Western Hospital. Belak selected this charity due to the fact that one of his daughters suffers from Tourette Syndrome.

Per the National Tourette Syndrome Association’s website, “Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (Tourette Syndrome or TS) is a neurological disorder which becomes evident in early childhood or adolescence before the age of 18 years. Tourette syndrome is defined by multiple motor and vocal tics lasting for more than one year.” It is described as a lifelong neurological disorder.

For more information on Tourette Syndrome, you may visit the websites of either the National Tourette Syndrome Association or the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada.

The Tourette Syndrome Clinic at Toronto Western Hospital is the largest of its kind in Canada and one of the largest in North America.In memory of Wade, a charity drive for the Tourette Syndrome Clinic is being initiated.

All that is requested is a donation of $3.00 to the charity drive, with an ultimate goal of making a $3,333.00 donation to the clinic in Wade’s memory.
The Wade Belak Memorial Charity Drive

Please consider a $3 donation to the Toronto Western Hospital's Tourette Syndrome Clinic in Wade's honor using the link above.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

PredsV82 has offered to match up to $150 in donations (50 - $3 donations) for those that post after donating in the Wade Belak thread on the Nashville board before 6:00 PM CST Wednesday, Sept. 7th

As of 3:00 CST Saturday there has already been $1562.66 raised towards the goal of $3,333!

While I support this, it seems more fitting that the money go towards a cause that deals with depression, no?

Depends on how you look at it. Belak could have donated the money he was to earn from the show to research into mental illnesses like depression, but he wanted it to go elsewhere. Maybe it's because he didn't want questions to be asked, but I think since no one can really say for sure the best idea is to go ahead and send the money to a place we know for a fact he wanted to support.

I appreciate your concern and support.

FWIW, the Tourette Syndrome Clinic was selected as the charity prior to Belak's battle with depression was made public. It was selected because it was chosen by Wade to receive the proceeds from his part in the "Battle of the Blades" show and was in fact a charity with a personal connection to Wade and his family as one of his daughter's suffers from Tourette syndrome.
