Everyone wins in Las Vegas right?
Of course not.
You’ve heard the other name for the town…Lost Wages.
What better place to take a bunch of underage kids for a lacrosse tournament! Joking aside, the supervision for Burnaby Mountain Selects is always awesome and last time I checked, the fields weren’t right on the strip.
Guess what. One of the squads…the U12 (so these are young men 12 years of age and under) won their entire division securing the victory with a come from behind win just hours ago.
That is fantastic and for all the teams, win or lose on the scoreboard, these tournaments just make you better. The competition makes you stronger. It’s all good. Everyone wins.
And now for the completely unexpected.
The winners of this tournie get a cheque for $250. I can think of a lot of things a team could buy. All deserved. Dinner, snacks, souvenirs, lacrosse gear, odor-be-gone for lacrosse bags, etc 🙂
Guess what they just did?
Donated the whole thing to Chris’ fund.
Here’s the pic to prove it just an hour or so ago. (see link below)
I’ve talked a lot about giving and grieving and how those go together. This gift to us is so amazing beyond any dollar amount. What an amazing gift.
THANK YOU boys. THANK YOU Joyce, Brent and Jeff and the entire BMS gang.
Be The Best!
We are humbled, proud and grateful.
I think Chris might just bodycheck someone up in heaven tonight in your honour…if that’s allowed…wait, I’ll check with Rev. Jake (Chris’ Grandpa) cause I’m pretty sure there’s a lacrosse section up there! In fact I know there is…I just wasn’t sure on the bodychecking rule…
