Wesley's 2nd Annual Campout

In March 2010, then 11year old Wesley Prankard camped out for 24 hours and raised close to $6,000 to aid the homeless crisis in Attawapiskat Ontario. On March 16th-18th of this year, Wesley camped out for 48 hours at the Campark Resorts Campgrounds in Niagara Falls to raise funds and awareness for both his missions, to build a playground in every remote Northern Community and for Shannen’s Dream. Shannen Koostachin, a First Nations young girl, had a dream to build safe, comfy and culturally based education schools for all First Nations children and youths. Shannen passed away at the age of 15 in 2010 and Wesley is now endeavouring to carry out her dreams. Bill 571 (Shannen’s Dream) was introduced in the House of Commons in September 2010 and if passed it will see the end of inequalities facing First Nation kids in Canada. Special guest Cindy Blackstock, Executive Director of First Nations Child and Family Caring Society spoke at a large gathering at the conclusion of the campout.
