15 Year Commemoration Gift

Date
November 17, 2022


      To commemorate their 15-year partnership with Westview Health Care Center, Quinebaug Valley Multisport offered a gift of a framed jersey to hang in the Westview Sports Medicine gymnasium. Westview has remained a primary sponsor for the group (formerly known as Quinebaug Valley Velo) since its beginning; prominently placing the facility’s logo front and center on their competition gear. The QV Multisport athletes wear this apparel as they train throughout our local towns and trails and during the variety of races their members enter. In addition to local marathons, cycling races, and triathlons, QV Multisport members have participated in events like the Boston Marathon, The Mount Washington Bike Race, and The Ironman Triathlon during their organizational history. According to QV Multisport athlete Marc Cotnoir, “The club’s primary objective is to promote the value of cycling, running, swimming and hiking as sports to benefit personal health and well-being. To that extent, the club has provided support for local trail building, youth cycling, and other projects that benefit the sports that our club promotes.”

      The partnership between Westview Health Care Center and Quinebaug Valley Multisport goes beyond sponsorship itself—many of the QV Multisport athletes have worked with the Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers at Westview Sports Medicine over the years to maintain their athletic abilities. A group of Quinebaug Valley Multisport members recently visited Westview Sports Medicine to deliver this framed 2022 competition jersey as a gesture of their gratitude. The attending athletes from QV Multisport were adorned in a variety of competition jerseys and jackets from different eras of the organization. The range of Westview logos printed on the attire from different years further illustrates their shared history. During the presentation, QV Multisport member Nicole Danis expressed profound gratitude from the group, stating: “On behalf of the Quinebaug Valley Multisport Board of Governance, we present this jersey to show our appreciation for your continued support. You have supported us for over 15 years—both financially and physically! Over this time, we have greatly appreciated your knowledge in working with our athletes, and we highly recommend your services to everyone in our region.” Once the jersey was positioned in its place on the wall, the present QV Multisport members signed the frame’s glass to commemorate the occasion.

      Kayla Belanger, a Physical Therapist at Westview Sports Medicine, shared in celebrating this long-standing collaboration. “Westview Health Care Center has such a great connection with Quinebaug Valley Multisport, and I have been fortunate to get to know several of their athletes throughout the years. I love hearing about all of their aspirations and accomplishments with the events they pursue.” Kayla went on to comment on the reciprocal success shared between the facility and the club. “QV Multisport athletes push themselves to achieve greater and greater athletic goals, and in turn, that challenges us to be better and better as Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers. It’s a mutually beneficial collaboration, and I am proud to be a part of this long-standing partnership.”

      We give immense thanks to the honorable members of American Legion Post 21, Val Rogers and her talented musicians, and our own dedicated staff for making sure that we observe this occasion with a properly respectful and stirringly entertaining program. Today is Veterans Day: a day where all Americans have a duty to thank our service men and service women for the freedoms we share. Tomorrow, the day after that, and every day that follows are just as important for expressing gratitude to our military Veterans. With great pride and admiration, we thank our American service Veterans—past and present.

      Westview Sports Medicine Director Alex Williams greatly appreciates the gift of the framed jersey, and moreover, the strong, healthy representation that Westview and QV Multisport promote. “I am very proud to see this partnership stride through our 15th year and beyond. Both of our organizations, Westview Health Care Center and Quinebaug Valley Multisport, work very hard to represent the best of our abilities. Through our shared and respective histories, we celebrate our achievements: in local health care and national rankings—in regional races and international triathlons. I really appreciate the gift of this framed jersey as a symbol of how we inspire greatness in each other.”
