The Sport BC’s Community Sport Hero Awards honour sport volunteers in communities throughout the province. These volunteers are the lifeblood of continued development and delivery of sport programs in B.C.
Founded in 2001, Sport BC said the awards play an important role in recognizing the dedication and leadership of B.C.’s sport volunteers.
The ceremony begins Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Ramada Inn starting at 6:30 p.m. with welcoming remarks, an awards presentation, closing remarks and a group photo. At 7:30 p.m. there will be an appetizer reception.
As space is limited to guests of the recipients, the event will not be open to the public.
