SPORT & SELF-ESTEEM CLINIC AIMS TO INSPIRE MONTREAL GIRLS:

Terrell Owens and Marie Dugas to support cause

 

 

 

March 2, 2016 (Montreal, Quebec) – Young female Montrealers will have the chance to improve their athletic skills, while working on their inner beauty and strength, at a sport and self-esteem/self-awareness clinic on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at the McGill Currie Gym (475 Pine Ave.)

 

Entitled “Beauty & Beast” tagline is “Why choose? Be both!” Targeted to young women aged 7 to 18, the mission of the event emphasizes to young female athletes they may be both athlete and embrace their femininity. This premier, and “first” for Montreal event, is the brainchild of professional athletes, Anneth Him-Lazarenko (all­star professional basketball player) and Kyries Hebert (Montreal Alouettes Linebacker, #34, and dubbed “The Angry Bird”).

 

The one-day event will be hosted by Him-Lazarenko: “There are many sport clinics geared to young men while rarely organized for young women. As a female athlete I know the importance of balancing physical strength while nurturing self­esteem and self­awareness. I wanted to create an annual event that did just that. Empower our young female athletes.”

 

In that spirit, participants will be coached by professional athletes, female speakers, and entrepreneurs.  There will be a choice of four sport clinics (basketball, track, cheer, and dance) in the morning taught by professional athletes. An empowerment seminar focusing on self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-worth, will follow in the afternoon, lead by author and host Dr. Laurie Betito, and author and breast cancer survivor, Nalie Augustin.

 

The day will be capped with an All-Star Celebrity Basketball Game featuring NFL, CFL and NBA players, including five Superbowl Champions; Terrell Owens (NFL future Hall of Famer); Marie Dugas (Quebec Gold medalist for track); Devon George (NBA World Champion, formerly of the LA Lakers); Britanny Jackson (former WNBA star); Tyrell Sutton (CFL Leading Rusher); and Albert Hanesworth (former NFL Pro-Bowler), to name a few.

 

Participants from the Cheer and Dance clinics will be performing at the All-Star Celebrity Basketball Game pre-game, half-time, and side-line. Pre-game starts at 5:30 pm. Game-time is at 6 pm. Tickets are $20.

 

Hebert, who is the founder of the Ky Cares Foundation, will be both behind-the-scenes and on the court. “As the father of two young girls, I see firsthand that the opportunities afforded to boys seem to outnumber the ones given to girls. I want to help contribute to the change I believe we need to empower young women to feel beautiful in their own skin and confident while in the sports world. We are creating a movement here.”

 

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Montreal Alouettes Foundation whose mission is "to promote education by working to reduce the dropout rate among adolescents and young adults, and to encourage the development of amateur football in Quebec".

 

Local businesses and organizations sponsoring this premier local event include to date: Beauty & Beast Event, McGill University Athletics Department, Montreal Alouettes, Montreal Alouettes Cheerleaders, Pazazz Printing, Melika Dez Photography, Spa Bota Bota, Giulia Tripoli Dance Studios, L’Autre Couture, and Basha Place Montreal Trust.
