Congratulations to our CEO, Beverley Hammond, who has been awarded the 2016 Harry “Red” Foster Award tonight by Special Olympics Canada. This honorary award is given to a leader who exemplifies the spirit, philosophy and goals of the Special Olympics Movement. Bev was a member of the Special Olympics Canada Board of Directors for 13 years (2002 – 2015). Her final 6 years were spent as the Chair where she used her skills, time and talent to build awareness for Special Olympics Canada, to develop solid governance, structures and policies, and to help secure funding so that SOC can successfully deliver programs across Canada.
Way to go Bev! We are so proud of you!
