Even though school is out and the sports are done, student athletes at UBC Okanagan still are finding ways to give back.
Four UBC Okanagan Heat student athletes joined local media and sports personality, Ryan Watters, on his Okanagan Sports Network ‘Team’ as participants in a Heart and Stroke Foundation fundraiser called appropriately ‘The Big Bike’.
On Thursday (May 22) just before noon, Michael Lee (Golf), Kailin Jones (Volleyball), Sarah Allison (Basketball), & Cam Friesen (Basketball) represented their Heat teams and their university on the fundraising ride that did two laps on the 29 seat bike around downtown Kelowna.
Ryan’s Okanagan Sports Network team raised $2,045 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Sarah Allison was honoured as one of the top 3 fundraisers on the Okanagan Sports Network’s team. Read more....
