Volunteers by their nature are not rewarded - they’ll never go home with an award for the work they’ve done, only the gratefulness of the community and a feeling of gratitude.

On June 14 Sport BC’s Community Sport Hero Awards aimed to change that by holding a night of recognition for the outstanding volunteers in Prince Rupert.  An awards ceremony held by Sport BC awarded exceptional sport volunteers that have been in service for decades.  John Mullin, Troy O’Toole, Mel Bishop, Gene and Christine Storey, Karen Myers, Don Seidel, and Fred Beil were all honored at a banquet held at the Coast Hotel.
