LYNDON — Lyndon Institute received a $1,650 donation to its new Girls Lacrosse program from Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital’s Community Health fund.
Earlier this past fall, Lyndon Institute announced that club lacrosse will be added to its programming in the Spring of 2020, with the goal of becoming a Varsity sport after two years as a club sport.
A fundraising effort has been ongoing in support of equipment for their lacrosse program and for interested student-athletes in need.
“A huge thank you to the Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital for their generous donation to Lyndon Institute’s Girls Lacrosse Program,” Rebecca Lowe, LI Girls Lacrosse coach said. “This is an amazingly generous and supportive community; one that I am so proud to be a part of.”
The NVRH Community Health Fund supports a community-building approach that 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.
“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,” Lowe said.
