Sports and Cultural Organizations Receiving Maple Ridge 2020 BC Summer Games Legacy Funds

Maple Ridge – The Maple Ridge 2020 BC Summer Games Board and Legacy Committee are pleased to announce their community legacy. The Province, through the BC Games Society, is providing more than $128,000 to support local sport and community development projects and ensure people will benefit from the city being chosen to host the BC Summer Games.

Since the City of Maple Ridge was unable to hold the 2020 BC Summer Games due to the pandemic, this commitment of funding will ensure legacy projects can still move forward to support the value of sport across the community. The City of Maple Ridge will be given another opportunity to host in 2024.

“Sporting events are known for bringing people together, fostering community connections and generating significant economic opportunities,” says Lisa Beare, MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows. “These grants put Maple Ridge on the map as a sport event destination as it prepares to host the Summer Games in 2024. Congratulations to all of the recipients”

13 local non-profit sport, recreation and community organizations will receive funding for infrastructure, equipment, and training. The projects selected by the Legacy Funding Committee will have a lasting impact on sport and community wellness.

“Although our Games did not take place, our team is proud to leave Maple Ridge in better shape than when we started,” said Tom Bowen, Vice President of the 2020 BC Summer Games and Legacy Funding Committee Chair. “We are excited to see these legacies come to life in the coming years.”

The BC Games are held every two years. Greater Vernon will host the 2022 BC Winter Games and the 2022 BC Summer Games will take place in Prince George.

Golden Ears Athletics Society, $14,190.00
