Find 52: Jeff Sprangs


Friend and colleague Jeffrey Sprang had a special exhibition of portraits and recent work entitled Cohen, Drake, Downie & Frye: This is not a Law Firm”. His watercolours portray extraordinary individuals in sports, the arts, politics and entertainment. Drake, Gord Downie, Bryan Adams, Traci Melchor, Sidney Crosby, Stephen Lewis and Nelson Mandela– you are sure to find a personal hero here.

Sprang’s abilities are clear — he’s a master draftsman, superb painter and he designs each portrait for maximum understanding and visual excitement. One sees more than just a face, but the hints of a deeper humanity.”

Jeff’s work is represented in private collections and public institutions including Canada’s Hockey Hall of Fame. In 2013 he was named a recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal.

Most generously, Jeff has donated all proceeds from the show to OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation.

Find 52 started in Grenada
52 miles gets you right around this small, beautiful island. Companions on the second day included: Philip Clift from Petite Anse Hotel, an enthusiastic young boy and one very fit dog named "Dodgy".

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.

Fundraising is an Uphill Battle
In January 2015, I ran 52 miles in Grenada. Let me dismiss athletic motives; it so happens 52 miles gets you all the way around the island. I did it for money – $40,000 – all of which went to OneWorld Schoolhouse. CTV National news ran the story on May 25, 2015 and so began Find 52.

All men should strive to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why.

International Literacy Day 2016
Soufrière Primary ran a relay on September 8, 2016 to celebrate reading. The event was filmed as part of the "run-up" to our first Find 52 Thousand campaign in 2017. Over 1,000 students from grade 3-12 ran 1 mile segments right around St. Lucia.

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

Finding the way for Fundraising
Olympian Jake Holden and Richard Clewes survey the route for Find 52 in January 2016. The duo were joined by St. Lucian Olympic athletes and members of the Royal St. Lucia Police Force.

A road is a song, a poem, a movie, an adventure. It's hope and optimism, and inquisitiveness.
