Play with us!
We are happy to announce that we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of our annual Mordy Gordon Golf Tournament and Cyclothon at the Elm Ridge Golf Club on Monday, August 14th, 2023.
Over the last years, the tournament has raised more than $1 MILLION and it’s all thanks to the generosity of PEOPLE LIKE YOU! We are counting on the generosity of participants and sponsors this year to be able to always do more for our kids, many of whom are from disadvantaged backgrounds. Join us this summer to make a significant difference in the lives of the children who are counting on us!
Golfers taking part in our tournament will get the unique chance to play Vegas style on the magnificent Elm Ridge golf course while cyclists will bike their way at their own pace through the beautiful landscapes of Île-Bizard.
Golfers and cyclists will be entitled to a pre-event breakfast, food and drinks on the course or snacks for the cyclists, access to the golf club facilities during the day (including the pool), as well as the post-event dinner cocktail and auction. Amazing prizes are to be won over the course of the day, including a car for a hole-in-one!
Not a golfer?
Come for a ride!
The starting line of the Cyclothon is just off the Elm Ridge Country Club’s main building where everyone gathers for a great day of biking. While everyone starts at the same time, each cyclist will be able to complete the course at their own pace. Unlike your typical race, it’s not important who comes in first. The only real winners are the underprivileged children supported through this event. You will need to bring your own bicycle but we will provide you with a bike jersey which you will get to keep as a souvenir of your participation.
Cyclists can tune up their bikes on site by McW bikes and will also receive a cycling jersey and healthy snacks at various stations throughout the ride.
WHERE DOES THE
Sun Youth has been committed to the promotion of healthy lifestyles and school perseverance. Thus, to promote the physical, social and intellectual development of young people, Sun Youth offers children from 5 to 12 a day camp that is both fun and educational and youth 7 to 17 years, an alternative to channel their energy positively through sport while supporting their education.
Hundreds of kids benefit annually from Sun Youth’s sports and recreation program. This includes the Hornets football and basketball teams and sports development programs in basketball and hockey. We also offer a day camp every summer with special activities such as swimming lessons, urban gardening and various entertaining and educational outings. While participation in these activities is not free we often subsidize the fees for low-income families . Our sports and recreation wouldn’t be possible without the support generous donors and contribution of the countless volunteers who make a tremendous difference in the children’s lives.
20 years ago, Morris “Mordy” Gordon, Lewis Israel, and Marvin Pascal, decided to organize a golf tournament for Sun Youth. The goal was to raise money for the sports and recreation programs that they themselves had benefited from as kids. Mordy Gordon was the childhood friend of co-founder Earl De La Perralle and was one of the first members of Sun Youth dating back to the 1950s. After his passing the golf committee decided to honour him by naming the tournament after him.
