  • Overcome Limitations

Daniel Chan is a 400 meter hurdler from Toronto, Ontario. His athletic journey started in high school, where he won gold at the OFSAA Track and Field Championships. At the Canadian Junior Championships in Moncton, NB, he won silver in the 400m Hurdles, qualifying him to represent Canada in the World Junior Track and Field Championships. For over 8 years, Daniel has been competing at an international level, with Olympics on his mind. With the 2015 Pan-Am Games happening this summer on home turf and 2016 Olympics in Rio on the horizon, momentum is building faster than ever.

In April 2015, Daniel’s mother, Teresa Yeung, recognized the financial shortfalls involved for Daniel to fulfill his dream of becoming a world-class professional athlete. Teresa, along with her two daughters, Rebecca and Jacqueline founded GO FOR THE GOLD FOR DANIEL – an Ontario not-for-profit organization to help Daniel achieve his athletic dreams. (No. 001926433)

For an athlete pursuing their dreams, it is certainly a juggling act on many levels: studying, training, working and competitions. When the costs of competing are added to the mix, many athletes are unable to fulfill their potential without financial aid and support. The expenses are unyielding: entrance fees to compete in local, regional and international levels; costs for travel, accommodations, food, supplements to keep the body healthy, hiring the best coach for training and rehabilitation therapies in the event of injuries.

Supporting Daniel Chan and our athletes to represent a great country like Canada is tremendously rewarding, and we invite you to be a part of the journey.

Sir David Hawkins said this in his book, Power VS Force:

“The nurturing of excellence and recognition of value is the responsibilities of all people, because the quest for excellence in every area of human endeavor inspires us all toward the actualization of every form of man’s yet unrealized greatness.”
