Recognizing Special People
by Cross Country Nova Scotia, Staff, March 9, 2022
Every year, Sport Nova Scotia holds a gala banquet to present awards to athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and corporate sponsors to recognize their accomplishments and dedication to sport. The 2022 Awards event will take place on May 28, in Halifax.
Do you know a cross-country ski club volunteer who went above and beyond for our sport? Club volunteers work tirelessly on the front-lines and behind-the-scenes to ensure Nova Scotians can enjoy our sport. We have groomers, coaches, details keepers, organizers, fundraisers, communicators, equipment managers… and many more who make cross-country skiing special. Nominate a volunteer today.
Send us an e-mai! Tell us how the volunteer went above and beyond. Deadline is March 30, 2022.
