The Thompson Sports News


Ian Wild and Matthias Goossen of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers were in Thompson early this week.

 

Wild and Goossen delivered presentations on the Break The Silence on Violence Against Women, Bombers Tackle Bullying  (in partnership with Manitoba Status of Women) and the Canadian Red Cross' Beyond the Hurt program at four different schools; one in Wabowden and three in Thompson.

 

The pair both said that they were more than willing to give their time for the students here in the north despite the CFL season being almost half a year away.

 

Goossen said that this is an area of the province that doesn't get to see as many professional athletes and that the message they brought was extremely important for everyone, regardless of where they live.

 

The Bombers spent Monday evening with the Boys and Girls Club of Thompson, hanging out with the kids for over two hours.

 

Ian Wild told CHTM that the Boys and Girls Club holds a special place for him, as he was a part of the club when he was growing up and remembers when pro players would visit his school as a kid. He added that the visits had an impact on his formative years, and wants to do the same for future generations
