NVRH Donates to LI Girls Lacrosse Program
December 19th, 2019
Lyndon Institute received a recent donation to its new Girls Lacrosse program from Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH). The donation totaled $1650 and was made available through NVRH’s Community Health fund.
According to NVRH’s website, The NVRH Community Health Fund ensures consistent and continuous funding for local programs and services, demonstrating the hospital’s ongoing commitment to community health improvement.
Additional information from their site says that the NVRH Community Health Fund supports a community-building approach that goes beyond the delivery of medical care to improve the health and quality of life for people in the communities it serves. Community building helps address the root causes of health problems, such as poverty, by identifying and providing services and programs that directly influence health and quality of life.
“A huge thank you to the Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital for their generous donation to Lyndon Institute's Girls Lacrosse Program,” LI Girls Lacrosse coach, Rebecca Lowe, stated. “Not only will this generous gift support the development and growth of Lyndon Institute’s Girls Lacrosse Program, but it will make a positive impact on the health and well-being of girls in our community.”
Coach Lowe added, “In addition, I would like to personally thank and recognize community partners, Dr. Tom Turek, KTA Director, Abby Long, BMA Assistant Head of School, Jon Rice, Kingdom East School District Superintendent, Jennifer Botzojorns, and NVU-Lyndon Director of Athletics, Chris Gilmore, who all wrote letters of support for this grant. This is an amazingly generous and supportive community; one that I am so proud to be a part of.”
Earlier this past fall, Lyndon Institute announced that, beginning in the Spring of 2020, club lacrosse will be added to its programming with the goal of becoming a Varsity sport after two years as a club sport. A fundraising effort has been ongoing since the announcement in support of equipment for their lacrosse program and for interested student-athletes in need.
