In 2014, Marc joined the “Big Brothers & Big Sisters” organization, and became a Big Brother to Luan, a wonderful young man who was about to turn 13.

Luan is a polite and friendly student here in Victoria. He has a great sense of humour, and is very creative and talented. Luan and his family are originally from brazilian flag (where Marc & Deanna got married in 2009, and where Marc & Ryan went to watch the World Cup in 2014), so there were plenty of “natural” connections when Luan and Marc were matched together.

Luan and Marc see each other every weekend, and always seem to have a great time together. They go to the movies, play sports, video and board games, hike and bike, share weekly stories, listen to music, and joke around and share a lot of laughter.
