SOBC Awards celebrations coming this summer

SOBC Awards

We are delighted to congratulate the 31 accomplished and dedicated athletes, coaches, and volunteers who have been nominated for this year’s Special Olympics BC awards! Many thanks to everyone who took the time to spotlight these community members for their outstanding achievements, spirit, and contributions to Special Olympics!

Each year, the SOBC award winners are chosen by a selection committee comprised of volunteers from around the province. With so many amazing individuals nominated this year, the selection committee now has the difficult task of choosing the award winners after carefully reviewing all nominations.

  • Long-time SOBC friend and champion Marnie Carter of Carter Auto Family
  • SOBC Region 5 Coordinator Darren Inouye
  • SOBC Past Chair Pamela Keith

Let’s get ready to celebrate the deserving nominees and winners!
