Abbotsford – The Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame is pleased to announce the upcoming induction of Special Olympics coach Donna Bilous.
Bilous is being honoured as a community sport builder, and she’s the first-ever Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame inductee whose contributions have primarily come in the realm of the Special Olympics. She will be officially enshrined at the annual Hall of Fame banquet on Saturday, April 28 at the Legacy Sports Centre.
In addition to welcoming Bilous as a permanent inductee, ten individuals and four teams (listed below) will be recognized as Wall of Famers. The Wall of Fame honours athletes in the 14 to 25 age bracket who had outstanding accomplishments in 2017. They will each have a plaque on display at Legacy Sports Centre for one year.
The public is invited to join in the celebration of these outstanding athletes. Banquet tickets are $60 each or $450 for a table of eight, and can be purchased at Hub Motor Service (33839 Essendene Ave.). For more information on the Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame, visit abbysportshalloffame.ca.
