Soccer and floor hockey head coach Mike Gojevic, recently made his debut at the National Transplant Games at UBC where he snagged a gold and two silvers in golf, lawn bowling and 10-pin. No mean feat.
Mike not only devotes major time to Special O but is also an active participant and was this year’s B.C.’s team manager during that monumental event for transplant survivors.
Genny Verge, athlete and Local Coordinator Pat Stuart delivered a speech to The 100 Women Who Care group who donated $4,000. They have also invited Genny and Coach Cathy to return in September to share their experience at the National Games.
Athletes Bruce Stuart, Candice Garrett and Wes Harrison enjoyed serving pancakes at The Gibsons Legion Community Days breakfast before the Show and Shine Motorcycle Ride. At that time, the Legion generously donated $500 to Special Olympics Sunshine Coast.
The Gibsons Lions Club also donated $500 to our Sunshine Coast team competing at the SO National Games in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
Finally, our thanks go to Unifor Local 1119. President Don Rheaume, on behalf of the workers at Howe Sound Pulp & Paper, donated $500 in support of SOBC Sunshine Coast.
It is people and organizations like this that help make Special O on the Coast, shine.
That about does it for this month! Remember, the summer flies by quickly and registration will be coming up in September. And on and on it goes in the world of Special O!
