Ichim left Vancouver on May 4 on her Cross Canada Skate. Averaging 100 to 150 kilometres a day, the 18-year-old skater plans to reach St. John's by the end of September. Her goal is to raise $5 million for The Canadian Cure Campaign, helping her mother and other leukemia victims in their quest for a cure.
Speaking from her cell phone en route to Waterloo this week, Ichim said so far $50,000 has been donated, and she is optimistic the figure will rise as she travels through central Canada.
"Knowing I'm actually making a difference in the lives of people," she said, helps her keep going, despite fatigue and the tendonitis in her ankles. "I always wanted to help heal the world, and now is my chance," she said. Ichim and her brother Thomas, a UW student, have spent the past eight years, since their mother was diagnosed with leukemia, doing what they can to help find a cure.
The UW Chemistry Club is the latest organization to provide support. The club chipped in with a $325 donation from a recent barbecue. Anyone wishing to contribute can make a donation through the Chem Club in Chemistry II room 172.
Ichim said she's been admitted to first year at UW this fall, but hasn't decided whether to accept the offer or go elsewhere.

A discussion paper on Ontario's high school curriculum is due out this fall.
Today is also the last day of business, until the fall term, for the Bon Appetit "food fair" in the Davis Centre. The nearby Tim Horton's outlet will stay open all through August, with sandwiches and soup added to its usual menu.
Still more news: the administrative offices of food services moved on Wednesday from the "commissary" area in the General Services Complex up to Village I, which is to become the headquarters and main kitchen for food services all across campus. The WatCard office is still in GSC for now, along the ring road near the railway tracks.
