Throughout the fall and winter, I am a volunteer coach for the Canmore Nordic Biathlon Bears program. Practices are held once per week to teach the basics of shooting, skiing and racing to boys and girls aged 12-14.
When back in Kelowna, I enjoy mentoring younger biathletes at my home club, Telemark, by running ‘Girl’s Days’. These are special days where all the girls get together to work on skiing and shooting technique, learn race strategies and grow a passion for a healthy lifestyle.
Canuck Place in Vancouver has a special place in my heart. This non-profit organization gives sick children (including my niece) the proper medical attention and support while they are either at BC Children’s Hospital, or while their parents get away for a few days.
