Weekend of Hope


Audrey Gainey, Reporter

Weekend of Hope, a two day event, will be held on Saturday, April 26, and Sunday, April 27. On Saturday, guests can “swing for a cause” by playing golf at the McCormick Woods Golf Course. On Sunday, guests can “race the course” in a 5k or a 1 mile ‘fun run’.

This event supports the International Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva Association (IFOPA), the Epilepsy Foundation, Mary Bridge Hospital and Jordyn Valona. Valona is a senior at the school who is living with Fibrodysplasia and epilepsy.

Those that are interested in going to this event can register in the school office, on Jordyn’s website or can show up on the day of the event and purchase a ticket there. Early registers get tickets for 20 dollars, but the price goes up at the door.

Those unable to make the event can still donate money through Jordyn’s website or in the front office at the school. Gift card donations for the raffle can also be dropped off in the front office.

The ‘Weekend of Hope’ is at McCormick Woods Golf Course: 5155 McCormick Woods Dr SW, Port Orchard, WA 98376.
