Making the snow accessible – Adaptive Sports adds new programing

Kamloops Sports Legacy Fund benefits Sun Peaks Group

The Kamloops Blazers Sports Society members and Board of Directors announced on Feb. 9 the allocation of the 2016 grants from the Sports Legacy Fund (SLF) to the Kamloops and regional sport community. Thirty organizations received a total of $334,000 in funding, including several contributions to Sun Peaks organizations.

Adaptive Sports at Sun Peaks received $2,500 for coaching development. The First Nations Snowboard Team received $5,000 for equipment and clothing. The Sun Peaks alpine and Nordic clubs also received funding; $4,500 for wireless timing equipment and $5,023 for biathlon rifles and coaching development.

Since the fund’s inception, 91 sport organizations have received $2.475 million in grants. A significant portion of these funds have been leveraged by the community groups to extend the value of the investments in equipment purchases, capital improvements, scholarships or coaching development.

The annual application period extends from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30 of each year and the allocation by the nine board members occurs following the review process.
