Tragedy struck the Palm family on July 30th, 2014 when they unexpectedly lost their the daughter, Jaime. She became trapped under the crossbar of an unanchored soccer net while playing with a friend last July. As a result of severe head trauma caused by the accident, she died in hospital later the same day.

Friends, family, Reach Volleyball, Dolphin’s Field Hockey and the Summerhill community all felt the loss of the talented student athlete.

In honour of Jaime a scholarship has been established, in her name, at Bill Crothers Secondary School. The scholarship will endeavour to support a graduating student who embodies Jaime’s characteristics: a zest for life, a love of sport, strong leadership skills and a brilliant academic foundation.

In support of Jaime’s scholarship, the Palm family is hosting The Butterfly Cup, a golf tournament whose proceeds will benefit a student athlete who best demonstrates Jaime’s indomitable spirit. It runs Sunday, June 27.
