A project of the Bridge Foundation
Tyson’s family helped established this fund in loving memory of Tyson C. LaJoie, the young dynamo who helped the National Junior Dek Hockey Team win its first World Championship Gold Medal in 2006, among many other athletic endeavors. Tyson also touched so many lives outside of sports. He reminds us that recovery is a precious gift and worthy of our greatest admiration and respect.
Your generous contribution will be used to support personal recovery, scholarship, programing and other functional needs of young men working on rebuilding their lives during transitional living at Synergy Houses. Participation in these funded activities is invaluable in creating a strong, supportive community and experiencing fun in sober activities. These two things keep people in recovery longer. Over the past three years, Tyson’s Fund has supported well over 150 young men on their journey of recovery. We wanted to share with you some of the benefits afforded these young adults thanks to Tyson’s Fund.
- Academic Grants to for GED, Certificate Programs and College Credits
- Personal Finances Coaching (group and individual)
- Recovery Support Meetings & Mentorship
- Yoga and Mindfulness Training
- Music Therapy/Equine Therapy
- Recreation and Teambuilding
Regardless of how much, how little, or why your path crossed Tyson’s; one thing was sure, he made an impact on your life. Whether it was his love of children, being the child at heart, his love of hockey and his fans he brought joy. His last days on earth were joyful. His heart was kind, his soul was sweet, and his life too short. If you take nothing else from today; please remember to love each other a little more, hug a little harder, and forgive one another a little easier.
