Athletes proud to accept the generous donation

We have a number of families who attend the church and last month, Laura, one of our rhythmic gymnasts and swimmers, nominated Special Olympics Burlington for the annual BIG GIVE . The BIG GIVE, in its third year at the church, is the donation of one Sunday’s collection in order to support a worthy cause in the community. This year, after a meeting with the selection committee, Special Olympics Burlington was successful.  Prior to selection our athletes Laura, John, Kyle and Rachel, along with Coach Stu White and Community Co-ordinator Cate Hawkins, made a presentation at Sunday service. They told the congregation about how Special Olympics Burlington has changed the lives of athletes and families in our community. The following week, donations for the BIG GIVE were collected.

Laura, John, Kyle and Rachel joined Cate Hawkins in receiving the donation from Compass Point Bible Church for $43, 922.50. Yes, you read that right….$43,922.50!

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

“Thanks to everyone at the Compass Point Bible Church for their amazing support and for making a difference in the lives of individuals with an intellectual disability. This will have an enormous impact on the continued growth of Special Olympics in Burlington.”
