Event description
Join us on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020 at the Highland Curling Club for a bonspiel, dinner & entertainment as we raise funds for Decklan's fight.

About this Event

A word from Decklan's Mother, Jayda:

"Everyone says “Life is short. Live each day to its fullest”. I can honestly say I didn’t truly understand the importance of either of those things until earlier this year [2019]. Most of you know for many years now Decklan has been in and out of doctors appointments, back and forth to Saskatoon, vials upon vials of blood taken, but we never got any answers. He’s always just been a little bit small - not growing or developing the way he should. We always knew something wasn’t quite right, but the way he was, was our normal and all that we knew. Earlier this year [2019] we finally got the answer- a diagnosis that rocked our world. Decklan has been diagnosed with a very rare Mitochondrial disease, called Leigh Syndrome. What was just normal to us, was actually a life threatening illness that we didn’t know we’d been fighting since the day he was born. " -Jayda Back

Diagnosis

Leigh Syndrome is a severe neurological disorder that usually becomes apparent in the first year of life. This condition is characterized by progressive loss of mental and movement abilities (psychomotor regression).

The Why

We are holding a fundraising event in support of Decklan and the Back family to help them through this difficult time. Funds raised at the event will go directly towards Decklan and his changing needs as his family continues to adapt and maintain his quality of life. Expenses the Back Family are currently facing are Decklan's medication, out of town appointment expenses (Mostly Calgary and Saskatoon), special dietary requirements, future home renovations to accommodate Decklan's changing needs and increasing time off work for Jayda & Mike. Decklan is unable to attend school when illness is present in his classroom as risking illness is very dangerous for him. We hope to make these emotional and financial stresses easier for the Back Family through our efforts. This is more than just a fundraiser, it's an opportunity to share our love and support for the Backs on February 8th.

Ticket Information:

Join us at the Highland Curling Club in Regina for some fun curling, a Ukrainian dinner, a silent auction and entertainment. Grab a fun team of four people and dress in your best superhero costumes! Curling not your thing? No problem! Tickets are available for just the dinner.

$65 Ticket -- Single curler ticket, dinner, one FREE drink and entertainment. Each team member needs to purchase a ticket. Please email your team line-up to mightydecklan@gmail.com.

$30 Ticket – Dinner and entertainment.

Super Hero Curling Bonspiel:

Since we live in Saskatchewan and winter tends to drag on, we wanted to do something fun--it is a FUNdraiser after all! We are encouraging superhero attire as a symbol of Decklan's strength. There will be a world class prize for the best dressed team (as determined by Decklan himself)!

Grab your team of four superheroes and come for some fun! If you don't have your own curling equipment--no worries! The Highland Curling Club will provide sliders and brooms. No street shoes will be allowed on the ice surface so please bring clean running shoes to curl in. Registration begins at 4:30pm and the first draw will begin at 5:30pm. More information to follow--the draw will be finalized two days before the event and we will be emailing teams with more information at that time.

***Please email your superhero team name and member names to mightydecklan@gmail.com.

Food and Drinks:

Dinner will be a traditional Ukrainian meal including a variety of salads, buns, perogies, sausages, cabbage rolls and desserts. Good ole Saskatchewan comfort food!

There will be coffee, tea and water available. There will be snacks on the ice for the curlers! Alcoholic drinks will also be available for purchase during the entirety of the event. The Highland has subsidized the bar at $5/drink (woo hoo!). There is an ATM on site at the Highland but we recommend bringing cash to the event.

Silent Auction:

There will also be a silent auction at the event with some amazing prizes. If you win a prize, please be prepared to pay in cash, debit or credit.

We hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please email Stephanie Schmidt and Katie Osborne at mightydecklan@gmail.com
