Thank you to all the Gala 2019 Sponsors & Donors

2019 Gala at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club

Thank you for such an inspirational Gala night at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club! Celebrated Canadian Paralympic athletes, Whistler Adaptive Alumni, board members, current volunteers, participants and honoured guests were all on-hand to raise funds to increase and enhance adaptive sports programming in the Sea to Sky over the next year.

Here are some of the extraordinary highlights:

  • $100,000 raised - a record amount for this wonderful event! 
  • Inspiring stories from Tamara Taggart, Paralympic athlete Lauren Woolstencroft, the O'Neill family and many more.
  • Over 170 items donated for the auction from both long-term and new supporters

With these donations, we plan to: 

  • Build capacity in lesson bookings by 500 sessions
  • Add to our fleet of adaptive sport equipment
  • Hire additional staff for programming
  • Upgrade our reservation and booking system

"This is a big milestone for us. It means we can grow our organization to the next level. We couldn't do it without your support. From our generous donors to those who jumped in to bid on the silent auction last minute, as well as those who matched contributions during the evening; It was a great effort by all and will make a really big difference. Thank you." - Chelsey Walker, Executive Director.

Whistler Adaptive is in Ironman 2019

 

 Each year, Whistler Adaptive participates in helping find volunteers and captain stations for Ironman Canada (Specific details this year coming in June).

The Ironman stations are an essential part of the event and for each station we coordinate, Ironman will donate $1,000 to Whistler Adaptive. We need a lot of volunteers to help make it a success, so please sign up and support Whistler Adaptive as we support one of the biggest events to Whistler!

Below were our stations from Ironman 2018. We will be getting confirmation for 2019 details by June:
