Child De­vel­op­ment and Guid­ance Cen­tre Re­ceives its 3rd Do­na­tion from DASH In­de­pen­dence Colour Run 2017

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

On Fri­day May 11, 2017 event man­age­ment com­pany, Li­ive Pro­duc­tions Inc., handed over its third mone­tary do­na­tion from its an­nual DASH In­de­pen­dence Colour Run to the Child De­vel­op­ment and Guid­ance Cen­tre.

DASH In­de­pen­dence Colour Run had its start in March 2015 with nearly 500 DASHERS/ colour run­ners and has since then ex­pe­ri­enced ex­po­nen­tial growth in both its size and phil­an­thropic ob­jec­tives with the Child De­vel­op­ment and Guid­ance Cen­tre be­ing the main ben­e­fi­ciary for the last three years.

“The do­na­tion has as­sisted with pro­vi­sion of ther­apy for chil­dren who need it, and it has also helped with trans­porta­tion and teach­ers’ aid for chil­dren who at­tend a unique pro­gramme for chil­dren with mul­ti­ple dis­abil­i­ties at the Dun­not­tar School,” said Dr. Kim Gard­ner, Di­rec­tor and Pae­di­a­tri­cian at the cen­tre. She added: “It has been very help­ful to our sus­tain­abil­ity as an NGO with hav­ing guar­an­teed an­nual fund­ing.”

This year the Child De­vel­op­ment and Guid­ance Cen­tre (CDGC) was pre­sented with a cheque for EC$6,500, ap­pro­pri­ated from each paid reg­is­tra­tion for the event.

Sup­ple­men­tary con­tri­bu­tions were made by the Wind­ward & Lee­ward Brew­ery pro­vid­ing cases of Su­per Malt, Minute Maid and Crys­tal Clear Wa­ter.

“The Li­iVEPro team would like to ac­knowl­edge the endorsement of the Min­istry of Eq­uity, Youth De­vel­op­ment and Sports and the mem­bers of the Saint Lu­cia In­de­pen­dence Com­mit­tee for their gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tions to­wards the event and the cause,” the team said this week in a press state­ment.

“We thank all stake­hold­ers in­clud­ing our part­ners, spon­sors, sub­com­mit­tee, vol­un­teers, well-wish­ers, on­look­ers and, of course, the 1,300+ DASHERS who came out to par­tic­i­pate and made this con­tri­bu­tion to CDGC pos­si­ble.”
