Help Nathan Pay It Forward

Nathan Manners from Brantford, Ontario is a dreamer turned champion for Sunshine.  As a teenager living with cerebral palsy, Nathan dreamed of being able to explore his neighbourhood on his own bike. To make his dream come true, Nathan needed an adaptive tandem bicycle – an expensive dream that was overshadowed by the medical expenses that take priority for his family. When Sunshine made his dream a reality, Nathan was beyond overjoyed. His newfound freedom, independence, and hope inspired him to pay it forward for other children across Canada living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses.  Together, Nathan and his Mom Lynn decided that the best kind of fundraiser that Nathan could actively participate in would be a garage sale with all the proceeds going to Sunshine.

“Nathan’s Garage Sale is a fun way to raise money for our favourite foundation,” says Lynn. “We are so proud of his big heart and the true generosity of hosts and supporters across the country.”

Inspired by Nathan’s spirit and determination, Sunshine extended Nathan’s fundraising idea, turning it into a national initiative officially called Nathan’s Garage Sale. 2016 was the first year of initiative for Sunshine, inviting friends, families, and supporters from across Canada to host their own “Nathan’s Garage Sale” to help Nathan ‘pay-it-forward’.

This summer, Nathan and Sunshine invite you to pay it forward by hosting your very own Nathan’s Garage Sale in support of The Sunshine Foundation of Canada.
