Goyette-Hill Park (Sutton)
Olympiades pour la santé
In collaboration with the schools of Dunham, Frelighsburg and Sutton, the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation is pleased to present a new fundraising event: the Olympiades pour la santé!
From the schools for the schools
On Friday, June 9th, students from Dunham, Frelighsburg and Sutton schools will meet to participate in a day of sports activities at Goyette-Hill Park located in Sutton. The sports educators of the participating schools and specialists in several sports disciplines have organized an unforgettable day where health and sports will be in the spotlight.
Created as a fundraiser, this event is free for the students. All parents, friends, and citizens of Brome-Missisquoi can support them by donating online or by phone. The money raised will be shared between the BMP Foundation and the participating schools.
The Sutton school will use its share of the proceeds to enhance its breakfast program, while the Dunham and Frelighsburg schools will acquire new proprioception and sports equipment. The BMP Foundation will purchase state-of-the-art equipment for the BMP Hospital.
If you would like to support this event in other ways than donating, the organizers are always looking for volunteers. Whether it’s to supervise the children’s activities, distribute snacks or organize registration, we have room for anyone who has time to give on Friday, June 9! To register or if you have any questions, you can contact the event coordinator Olivia Ranger-Enns: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
