The Group's Purpose

Welcome to all my fans, friends new & old, family, and supporters of mine on my quest for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. I've started this "giving group" because I would not be competing for Canada without the support of so many generous people and charities. An Olympic campaign is a very expensive venture and truly a team effort. No medal is won by only the athlete themselves, and I definitely cannot do this on my own. Support from those people around me is essential for this journey to be a success...

How to Help

You support can come in many forms. As a supporter, you can:

1. Donate to my group. All your donations are 100% tax-receipted.

2. Get in touch. If you run a team or club that need outfield training, I would be happy to come and help. Lets trade my coaching time, for your support.

3. Any other creative ideas that you have, I'm all ears.

About the Organizers

My name is Mark Pearson, and I play for Canada’s National Field Hockey Team.

I was born in Vancouver but honed my Field Hockey skills as a youngster on the grass pitches in Victoria and Tsawwassen. I have been a member of the Canadian Team since 2005, and have competed at various International Events including 2 Commonwealth Games, a Pan American Games, Hockey World Cup in 2010 and my personal highlight, the Olympic Games in 2008. Representing my country has really been an unbelievable experience and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to travel the world playing a sport I love with a group of guys who I consider my best buds. Missing out on London last summer was an incredibly tough pill to swallow however I am already looking forward and am excited to be apart of this team in our new journey to 2016.

You can be a part of that journey...
