Dear Children’s Hospital . . .
After a car accident at the age of four and a half left his sister a quadriplegic, dependent on a ventilator and a wheelchair, her brother decided to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital – through his love of dance.
Hi my name is Amardeep Sekhon. I am 11 years old and I live in Vancouver, BC. The reason why I am supporting BC Children’s Hospital is because my sister, Priya, was involved in a car accident.
As I grew up I started learning this Punjabi cultural dance called bhangra. Later on I started performing and at my first performance, the audience started throwing money at me because I was dancing so well. On that day I told my parents that I wanted to donate the money to the hospital to help all the sick children. So I wanted to make a difference.
For six years I have been collecting money for the hospital. On May 2011 in the World of Smiles telethon I raised over $500 for BC Children’s Hospital and this year, I raised even more – $613!
