Welcome to Chris Port's Personal Page - Tomorrow Doesn't Look Good Either
Please Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer in Honour of Jordan Christianson
In early 2017, Jordan Christianson, a close from of mine since Grade 1, passed away after a long courageous fight with cancer. No one made me laugh over the course of my life more than Jordan did, he truly was like a brother to me growing up. He was also a great personal inspiration to me after he pursued his dreams and passions by going to film school after high school. After years of hard work Jordan became a successful TV and Film writer, most recently being one of the top writers for the Murdoch Mysteries on CBC. He was living his dream and doing what he loved and getting paid for it, it is incredibly inspiring to see what you can do when you follow your heart.
Now it is up to all of us to carry on Jordan’s legacy, we can do that through his foundation (for more information on Jordan's foundation, and how you can donate, go to http://www.jordanchristianson.org) but we also have to keep Jordan’s passion and love for life alive through us. I challenge each and every one of you to find something that you are passionate about and do what Jordan did and do everything it takes to make it happen. Maybe you’ve always wanted to travel or take up a new hobby or learn a language or go skydiving or maybe even try a new career to find your dream job like Jordan did. Whatever it is you need to go out there and do everything it takes to make it happen and make Jordan proud.
One thing I'm committing to do is to complete the 2017 Ride to Conquer Cancer in Jordan’s honour. It’s a 2 day 300 km bike ride from Vancouver to Seattle that raises money for various cancer charities. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made! My goal is to raise $2500 for the ride, and while I am out fundraising I will try my best to get people also donate to Jordan’s foundation as well.
My Personal Page name is Tomorrow Doesn’t Look Good Either, named after Jordan's first big movie project. I don't think I have cycled for longer than an hour in a row, so riding for two days is going to be an adventure. But I will be able to draw inspiration from Jordan as when I’m struggling 5 or 6 hours into the first day and I realize that I’m not even close to halfway there, I will be able look up and say to Jordan, "Tomorrow doesn’t look good either buddy".
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support for this terrific cause!
