Events for Life Centre
Events for Life provides invaluable help for individuals who have special needs and challenges. The Centre provides an accessible meeting place for socializing, events for fun and entertainment, life skills development and employment training among many other supports. And they have been enthusiastic partners in our annual Run Blue Mountain fundraiser.
When the Coronavirus forced Events for Life to close its centre it was necessary to set up programs on-line to allow continued learning and skill development. This necessitated the purchase of lap top computers for client and staff use, new apps, expanded memory and a variety of related program material designed for remote learning.
T-C Rotary helped meet these expenses with a donation of $5,000 approved at its September board meeting.
As for future run participation, T-C Rotary is rebranding Run Blue Mountains. Renamed the Thornbury Turkey Trot, it will be held on Thanksgiving Sunday 2021 and will coordinate with the many other events that take place in town that weekend with a focus on family fun. We hope to partnering once again with Events for Life under this new banner.
See you there!
