Accident Leaves Olympic Dancer and Her Husband in ICU, Family Needs Assistance
Ottawa - Local aboriginal health and wellness instructor Beverley Sunday, 30, and her husband Joseph Sayer, 35, were badly injured in a single-vehicle accident just after 11:00 a.m. on Feb. 19th while driving on Lucerne Boulevard in Gatineau.
The couple both sustained serious brain injuries and multiple broken bones. Both are in intensive care at the CHVO in Hull. Their three young children - ages five, six and 12 - are currently being cared for by extended family. Sunday, originally from Alberta, is a prominent local aboriginal who participated as a dancer in the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Olympic Games on Feb. 12th in British Columbia, both she and her husband Sunday were Olympic Torchbearers in December.
Sunday was set to open the city's first Aboriginal fitness studio - HAWK Studio - in the west end this April. She is the creator and founder of REZFIT which is fusion fitness that incorporates Aboriginal dance throughout the world.
The local aboriginal community is in the early stages of planning multiple fundraisers, but the family needs assistance now. Donations can be made electronically or at any TD Branch:
