Fundraiser Information - Tyler Cormier

The beloved Tyler Cormier touched the lives of many of us in his short life among his hundreds of friends throughout Connecticut.  In memory of his life and to help provide college education opportunities for young people in the RHAM area, a golf tournament is being planned this summer.  The tournament will be a fundraiser, with the proceeds going toward college scholarships for college bound RHAM students who participated in the local Connecticut Special Olympics.

As most people know, Special Olympics of Connecticut (SOCT) provides exciting athletic competitions for mentally handicapped people.   It was started by the Kennedy family, and has grown into a wonderful community service.  SOCT provides athletic competition for people (youth and adults) with all types of disabilities, both physical and mental, and all skill levels.  Tyler Cormier was an active participant in many different Special Olympic sports (softball, basketball, swimming, and speed skating).  His celebrity encouraged many of our local youth to support and participate in various SOCT activities across the State, including the very popular basketball exhibition games during halftime at RHAM’s varsity basketball games.

The entire community is being invited to participate and support this very worthy cause. The 7th annual golf tournament will continue what was started last year to honor Tyler and his memory will a day full of smiles and laughs.
