Almost 13 years ago, the Sandra Schmirler Foundation was created by a group of the late curlers friends with the support of the Canadian Curling Association and Scott Paper. Elgin Baylor Lakers Jersey . The idea came about just over three years after Schmirler was standing on the podium in Nagano 1998, signing our national anthem after capturing the Olympic gold medal in womens curling. Unfortunately, it was also just 14 months after she passed away from a rare form of cancer at the young age of 36. Much like the success Schmirler enjoyed on the ice, the foundation started in her name has been a winner at providing hospitals with funding for the care of premature and critically ill newborn babies across Canada. Despite all the big curling shots she made over the years, including the famous in-off at the 1997 Olympic Trials, Schmirler said giving birth to her only daughter at the time was her best delivery. It was clear that Schmirler never lost sight of what was important in life, which makes her name a perfect fit for the foundation, which bears the slogan Champions start small. Currently, over 30 hospitals benefit as a result of funding from the foundation and last year, almost $300,000 was made available to those hospitals through grants. And over the 13 years the foundation has been in existence, almost $2.5 million has been allocated to 34 different hospitals Also, six junior curlers received $5,000 each in the first annual Spirit of Sandra Scholarships last year, including Kristin Streifel, who skipped Schmirlers home province of Saskatchewan in this years Canadian Junior Curling Championships in Nova Scotia. Sunday is Sandra Schmirler Day at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Montreal and TSNs Vic Rauter will be hosting the annual telethon for the foundation. Take a few minutes to visit SandraSchmirler.org or call 1-866-210-6011 and make a donation to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation. Magic Johnson Lakers Jersey . -- Kyrie Irvings last-minute 3-pointer helped seal another victory for Cleveland -- and the Cavaliers longest winning streak since LeBron James left. Jerry West Lakers Jersey . He made the comment at a media availability Saturday prior to Game 2 of the Boston-Montreal playoff series when a Quebec reporter said there is sentiment in Quebec that the NHL looks more favourably on Seattle than Quebec City when it comes to future expansion. http://www.lakersteamofficial.com/Kareem...rs-Jersey/ . And Richard Bachman, their rookie goalie, is facing a penalty shot a few seconds after the opening face-off. No pressure, right? Bachman stood his ground against Zack Kassian and saw the puck dribble off the Canuck rookies stick, then settled in and backstopped the Stars to a 5-2 win over Vancouver Tuesday that put Dallas in first place in the Pacific Division.SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Jim Harbaugh has no time for Deion Sanders, Trent Dilfer or others who question whether the fourth-year coach has lost his locker room or the faith of his players.In an NFL Network show Sunday, Sanders said of 49ers players: They want him out. Theyre not on the same page.Personally I think thats a bunch of crap, Harbaugh responded Monday. People say what they say.Analyst Dilfer offered Monday on ESPN Radio that, I do think its become almost toxic.Harbaugh dismissed that, too, by saying, I havent seen Trent or Deion around much.When youre talking about unnamed sources, if somebodys got a good story to tell, they ought to put their name to it, Harbaugh said. If I had a good story to tell, Id want to put my name to it, so I dont put a lot of credibility into the unnamed source.Harbaugh is in the fourth season of his original $25 million, five-year contract he signed in January 2011 when he left Stanford to become the 49ers coach. San Francisco (2-2) beat the Eagles 26-21 on Sunday to avoid the first three-game losing streak of his tenure, holding one of the NFLs best offences without a touchdown.Harbaugh has said he has an open-door policy and hasnt heard from CEO Jed York or general manager Trent Baalke that there have been complaints from players. And Harbaugh said players have voiced nothing specifically in terms of concerns with how things are going.Theres conversations, and we never really talk about those, Harbaugh said. Players have good ideas, coaches have good ideas, equipment managers have good ideas, trainers have good ideas, strength coaches. Welcome that. If we havent been doing something right or theres a better way to do it, then lets get it out in the open, lets talk about it and well do anything to fix something or make it better. Thats the kind of relationship we have.The 49ers, who host former quarterback Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs this coming Sunday, rallied in a rare strong second half to send the Eagles to their first defeat. Harbaugh spoke of the joy of coaching a game like that.Its gooing to be good for morale, I would suspect. Derek Fisher Lakers Jersey. Good for my morale, he said afterward. But we got to keep going.York said last year he hoped to get a new deal done for Harbaugh during the off-season, but that didnt happen. Instead, reports surfaced that the Cleveland Browns inquired about trading for Harbaugh.Still, Harbaugh described his relationship with York, Baalke and the front office as very good.Everybody is on the same page. Everybody is focused on this season, making it the best it can possibly be, working well together, he said.A few days after San Franciscos 2013 season ended with a January loss in the NFC championship game at Seattle, Cleveland hired Bills defensive co-ordinator Mike Pettine to replace Rob Chudzinski, who was fired after going 4-12 his first year.Harbaugh coached the 49ers to their first Super Bowl appearance in 18 years after the 2012 season, and San Francisco missed out on the franchises sixth championship. The Niners lost in the NFC championship game in Harbaughs first season to the eventual champion New York Giants. He earned NFL Coach of the Year honours while leading the 49ers back to the playoffs following an eight-year stretch without a playoff berth or winning record.Defensive stars such as Justin Smith and Patrick Willis have said this team must take the next step and win a title.What I love about our ballclub is theres no finger pointing, theres total belief in each other, Harbaugh said. Offence lifting up defence. Defence lifting up the offence and both doing that with the special teams. Thats a joy to be around. Thats a joy to coach. Now, theyre playing for each other. Thats what they should be doing. Im not taking any credit for that. Im just expressing thats a joy to be around these fighters, these men.NOTES: Harbaugh had no updates on the health of TE Vernon Davis, who left with a back injury, or RT Anthony Davis, who sustained a left knee injury in his season debut after returning from a hurt hamstring.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts Cheap Jerseys Online Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap Wholesale NFL Hoodies ' ' '
