“Executive of the Year,” BC Athletics Annual Awards Program September 7, 2013
“The Legion National Youth Track & Field Championships are a window into the future Canadian Championship and Olympic Games Athletics Teams. To stage the Canadian Championship requires the coordination of national, provincial and local organizations, sponsors and volunteers. To successfully present the Championships and keep all of the moving parts in order requires a Local Arrangements/Host Organization that has a vision, commitment and delivers.
“Such was the case for the 2013 LAC of the Legion National Youth Track & Field Championships. It was for the first time in the history of the Championships lead by the Ladies Auxiliary – BC/Yukon Command. The LAC not only raised almost 1.12 million dollars in Cash and Value-In-Kind support but brought the Championships to the people of Canada through a Social Media and grassroots campaign using a new Event Management Content Creation and Capture platform from OneBigBroadcast, a WebStager Company.
“The platform and tools included archiving the events through a mentored team of Videographers, aged 13-17, and social bloggers reaching across Canada and to a global audience of young aspiring Olympians from Brazil, Russia, India, China and the European Union countries. The Championships reconnected Alumni and friends of this 73 year old event, opening a new chapter in the storied history of the Legion involvement with Track & Field in Canada.”
