Landmark East honours Eastern Kings Memorial Health Foundation

Landmark East honours EKM

Landmark East School has made space on campus to honour a long- time supporter. The room dedicated to fitness and circuit training for Landmark East students has been renamed The Eastern Kings Memorial Health Foundation Wellness Centre. Much of the fitness equipment was purchased over time through grants from the EKM Health Foundation and used on a daily basis for physical education, spark fitness and weekend recreation programs.

The Foundation has supported Landmark East with a total of close to $30,000.00 in grants in recent years. This includes a very generous contribution of $10,347.00 made this year in conjunction with a $1000.00 grant from the Wellness Initiative Fund to purchase mini trampolines, spin bikes and a treadmill.

The EKM Health Foundation is a charitable organization that supports initiatives that have a positive impact on the health of the people of Eastern Kings County. The Foundation evolved from the closure in 1996 of the former Eastern Kings Memorial Hospital. Donations previously made to the former hospital were transferred to the Foundation with the intent that income from these monies supports health-related projects.

Sylvia Fullerton, Chair of the EKM Health Foundation holds up the new signage with Landmark East student, Phil Arsenault. Behind are students, Jacob Wadden and Jaylene Hubley and Headmaster, Peter Coll.
