A message from Macy:

Dear Erion Insurance Group,

Thank you for choosing me as your grant recipient. This opportunity has provided me with further ability to fulfill my athletic goals. As a grade 11 student and athlete, this grant will help me in various ways.

Two years ago, I fell in love with field hockey. Going into my grade 10 year, I was one of two girls on the starting lineup for my school, Eden High School. The following year, I had the honor of captaining the team. As my passion for this sport grew stronger, coaches began reaching out to me all over Ontario. I am now a part of a club in Mississauga called A&C Academy. I have traveled with my club team to Florida for the annual Sunshine Showcase and hope to go to Tampa with them as well this coming August for another tournament.

My aspirations for field hockey go as wide as making the national team. For right now however, I am focused on making Team Ontario. I have gone to both mandatory tryouts for the team and am hoping to hear back from them soon. Another goal of mine is to get scouted for a school in the NCAA to continue playing the sport I love post-secondary while being in school for neuroscience.

Because of this grant, I am surrounded by a group of coaches who understand what it takes to become a high-level athlete and will push me to do what it takes. I am honored to be able to have access to such an amazing facility and am excited to see what the future holds for me. Thank you again for this amazing opportunity.
