BOOK YOUR SKI DAY AT MONT TREMBLANT & SUPPORT BGCO!
Our event kicks off March 2nd, 2017 with a gourmet dinner at La Forge Bar & Grill, followed by a spectacular ski day on Friday, March 3rd, 2017 with four-time Olympian Brian Stemmle.
This event started out as a “skiathon” but has now evolved into a group ski day where friends come together in support of BGCO! View team sponsorship packages. Our online fundraising tool is another way to help skiers collect donations.
In our event’s 25 year history, we have helped buy a mini-bus, open a pool, grow a garden and support after-school homework club & healthy living initiatives.
OUR GOAL FOR 2017 IS TO RAISE $100K TO PUT 1000 CHILDREN & YOUTH THROUGH BGCO HOMEWORK CLUB IN ONE YEAR.
With a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, Homework Club gives students the resources, confidence and training to help them succeed in school and beyond.
Each Homework Club session includes a healthy snack and focused homework time where youth can access much needed technology and get help from tutors and staff.
When surveyed, 94% of the youth reported that they plan to graduate from high school and 87% plan to attend post-secondary school (something most members never thought was even possible!).
The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa is a registered charity and has been operating in the Ottawa area since 1923.
It currently has more than 4500 local members. Last year, 2748 members visited Homework Club. Membership is free.
Please join us at BGCO Charity Skiathon and make an impact on the education of children and youth in our community!
