Grant Impacts 2023
KAMLOOPS ROWING CLUB
The grant of $5,995 provided us with the opportunity to purchase a new Liteboat Coastal Single rowing shell. The club utilized 3 coastal boats (all purchased with KSLF grants over the past few years) for 30% of the May-October 2023 season.
KAMLOOPS SPORTS COUNCIL
The Council received a grant of $19,300 to add to and improve the infrastructure at the Shumway Lake site, home to the Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club (KCKC), Kamloops Rowing Club (KRC) and Kamloops Waterski Club (KWS). It is an integral component of the City of Kamloops Tournament Capital venues but as it is outside of city limits requires independent funding sources. The facilities are currently managed by the KSC and significantly funded by the Legacy Fund when administered by the Kamloopa Club.
SPECIAL OLYMPICS BC
Thanks to the Legacy Fund and the $15,000 grant for much needed equipment to host the 2023 SOBC Winter Games, more than 500 athletes got to compete with pride in the sports they love and showcase their skills and determination. They were overjoyed to reconnect with friends from all over the province.
