Cross-country head coach hospitalized
On Nov. 20, Peter Grinbergs, the head coach for Laurier’s cross-country and track teams, was found in his apartment by emergency services, unable to move and without food or water for four days.
A campaign listed by Grinberg’s daughter on crowdfunding site, GoFundMe, explained that doctor’s have speculated the cause might have been a severe gout attack. The description goes on to note that since being hospitalized, doctor’s have also discovered the existence of a stomach ulcer as well as a blood clot in his lung.
The GoFundMe campaign, which has already exceeded it’s $25000 goal, notes that funds will be used to “pay Peter’s ongoing bills while he is in the hospital,”
“pay for the clean-up of his current living space,” and “support his household expenses once he is discharged from the hospital.”
The Golden-Hawk’s Cross-Country team recently competed in the U Sports Cross-Country Championships, where they improved upon their record and saw a shining performance from Bettina Boucher.
