In pre­vi­ous years Nestor Wyn­rush aka Elliott Walsh has orga­nized The Give Peo­ple Your Mon­ey Jams” that helped to raise funds for the Win­nipeg based Rehab Cen­tre For Chil­dren Foun­da­tion and Can­cer Care Man­i­to­ba, two orga­ni­za­tions that are near and dear to him. Instead of being a one time event The Tin Cup Marathon will now allow Nestor to raise funds for a char­i­ty at every event that he pro­motes or head­lines (plus a few oth­ers) for the next year. A Tin Cup named Lennox will be present at these events. Nestor finds run­ning marathons to be very dif­fi­cult, time con­sum­ing and not his cup of tea. How­ev­er, he does enjoy break­ing a sweat on stage. In addi­tion, Lennox will nev­er com­plain of fatigue in his travels. 

All pro­ceeds thrown into the Tin Cup will be giv­en to the announced char­i­ty of the evening. The Tin Cup mon­ey (Lennox’s cash) will always be kept sep­a­rate from the artists’ pay & reg­u­lar door admis­sion col­lec­tions. Hope­ful­ly at year end there will be a few won­der­ful totals that will ben­e­fit those in need. This won­der­ful series of events will kick off on August 6th at J. Fox’s Rester­aunt & Local, as the Nestor Wyn­rush Ensem­ble will per­form with Maiko Wat­son.

The name of Nestor Wynrush’s online label Marathon Of Dope was inspired by Ter­ry Fox’s Marathon of Hope”. Con­tin­u­ing on that line of think­ing, The Tin Cup Marathon can be tak­en nation­al­ly on a small scale. The Tin Cup will allow a flex­i­bil­i­ty to raise funds for nation­al orga­ni­za­tions such as the Champs/​War amps pro­gram when Ness per­forms in oth­er provinces. The pos­si­bil­i­ties are inspir­ing and limitless.
