2015 FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to our winners of the 2015 Athletes of the Year awards, they both showed their commitment, dedication and hard work throughout the year both in and out of competition. They are both excellent role models for our Junior members and always lead by example. Volunteering on our Board of Directors in 2015 they were instrumental in helping shape this club and always willing to help.
Cynthia met her own challenges in 2015 but made it to Chicago to run what is known as "The People's Marathon" on a hot day. She also claimed many age group wins throughout the year including The Moon in June and Beamsville Bench 5KM to name a couple of them. No matter what hurdles she faces, she never stops smiling and supporting everyone at races and workouts.
Mike also had a season of highs and lows that has taught him to be a stronger runner but also a more patient runner. Highlights from the year include his wins at both the Nutrience Oakville Half 10KM and Peachbud 5KM events as well as his 5000m race in Ottawa where he ran 15:32. Each Athlete of the Year was given an engraved trophy and $50 Foot Tools Gift Card.
The choice of these two athletes was not an easy one as lots of spectacular athletes were nominated including Darryl Rowan, David Gallant, and Kelly-Lynne Spettigue. It is because of our members and their support that we had such a successful first year and as we move forward to new goals, new races and new adventures. This can only happen with your support of Lions Valley Athletics and the local events, and our community! We can't always do it alone and thats why Teamwork Makes The Dream Work! #TEAMworkMakesTheDREAMWork
It was an evening of celebration for everything Lions Valley Athletics had accomplished in 2015 and we held our Team Dinner and Awards at Drafted Sports Bar & Grill. We enjoyed some good food, drinks and entertainment including watching parts of both the Raptors and Blue Jays games which were very exciting adding to the fun! We gave out our two awards for Male and Female Athletes of the Year and for everyone in attendance there was a draw for a pair of Blue Jays Tickets. Sean Patterson desperately wanted those tickets and he left happy because he was the lucky winner of those Jays tickets.
A Big THANK YOU to all of our members for making this possible! Keep up the great work!
