goal 3: ENSURE HEALTHY LIVES AND PROMOTE WELL-BEING FOR ALL AT ALL AGES
Twelve year old Sarah Nelson is baking up more than treats! After visiting a candy store in Traverse City, she opened her own baking business called Sarah Bug's Bakery, in which half of the proceeds go to Algoma Regional Community Hospice (ARCH). She has raised over $5,000 for ARCH so far. She is now a CEO as well as the youngest recipient of the Queen Elizabeth Jubilee Medal.

My 5th birthday is till day the best day of my life. I still remember it very vividly. My dad got me a huge lego set.
