Ski Bees Gives back in many ways!
The annual Golf Day is hosted by Karen Simpson at the 4Season's Golf and Country Club.
The Ski Bees community has been a generous supporter of various charities for the past 15 years and will continue to be. Through our annual Charity founded by Caroline and Mike Casey we offer a Golf Day held each September at the beautiful 4 Seasons Golf and Country Club and the annual Uxbridge/Stouffville Bus Heart and Stroke Wednesday, our members and sponsors have generously raised well over $25,000 over the years. We select a charity each year and in the past we have directed our contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation,Collingwood General and Marine Hospital, Camp Oochigeas, Parkinson Society – Durham Region Chapter, Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation, the Brain Tumour Foundation, The Tracy Stewart Foundation, The Olympic Foundation, Canadian Cancer Society and Prostate Cancer Canada. We believe it is important to not only give back to our community in general but also to our ski community in particular, and we thank all of our members for their generosity and kindness.
With this in mind and after being inspired by Nancy Greene-Raine’s similar initiative in her Sun Peaks community, Caroline and Mike Casey have created the Ski Bees Student/Athlete Ski Racing Bursary which will be awarded each fall to a young upcoming skier who exemplifies dedication, determination, a solid work ethic an excellent attitude and a commitment to balancing school with their athletic pursuits.
Ski Bees Student/Athlete Bursary to Collingwood’s Briar Jones and also Michaela Gosselin. Briar and Michaela will be out to one of our Wednesdays’s this season to meet everyone and update us on their season!
Hello from Saas Fee, Switzerland to all the Ski Bee's . I am currently training with the National Ski Academy (NSA) where I am in my second year of U16. I had an awesome year last year. I trained hard and made it to my first U16 Nationals in Tremblant. This Spring I had the opportunity to travel to Hemsedal, Norway and participate in the SKISTAR Winter Games representing Canada and making new Norwegian friends. I am excited for the coming winter and I have been working hard in the gym and now on the slopes here in Switzerland.
Thank you so much for supporting me in my pursuit of my dream of being the best ski racer I can!
Check out my new hat...Queen Bee just found it the other day here in Sass Fee.
My name is Michaela Gosselin I am from Collingwood and grew up skiing at The Osler Bluff Ski Club. I am a current member of the Canadian National Para Alpine Ski Team, and compete on the World Cup tour. I recently competed in the Beijing Paralympic Games in 5 events, as well as World Championships in Lillehammer Norway. This season I will be competing in a series of World Cups in Europe and World Championships. This bursary will help me continue my ski career alongside studying at Queen’s University in Kingston.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Ski Bee’s bursary, I feel very honoured and grateful to be a recipient.
