Celebrating Our Sudbury Community
On October 10, a beautiful fall day, SCIO hosted our first Community Celebration in Sudbury. The brand new Northern Water Sports Centre was the location of the festivities and afforded our guests gorgeous views of the fall colours and sparkling water of Ramsey Lake. Volunteers, sponsors, partners and friends joined us in celebrating SCIO’s Sudbury community.
We were able to talk and discover common goals with each other while enjoying delicious appetizers from Bryston’s on the Hill and craft beer generously donated by Spacecraft Brewery. The highlight of the evening was hearing from our good friend Jake Thomas who shared his journey in finding freedom through sports. Showing pictures of his journey, Jake spoke of the healing properties of family, laughter and doing something you love, even if it looks different than before. Jake also showed a great video of an adaptive water skiing camp that allows participants, as one noted, to “check your disability at the dock”. Thank you Jake for sharing your story with us.
We could not have hosted the evening without our generous sponsors. Thanks and appreciation to:
- Wright Rehab, Reception Sponsor
- Spacecraft Brewery, Beer Sponsor
- Hollister, Preferred Medical Suppliers Sponsor
- IBC, Premier Provincial Partner
