School District staff, Coquitlam Principal Vice Principal Association, Coquitlam Teachers Association, & Canadian Union of Public Employees 561, participated in the annual SD43 Golf Classic presented by Polygon on Sunday, May 1, 2022 at the Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club in Coquitlam in support of KidSport Tri-Cities.
KidSport, is a non-profit organization that raises money to subsidize the registration fees for kids in the community who would otherwise not be able to participate in sports due to financial hardship. Every year the organization helps between 450-550 kids in the Tri-Cities play a season of sport by providing over $160,000 in registration grants.
Sharon McKay, one of the organizing committee members shares a few words thanking everyone for making it a great event:
“The weather was great, there were many activities on the course, and a lot of laughter between players. The opportunity to get together as a district after a two-year hiatus due to COVID was welcomed. We would like to thank all of our volunteers who made the day run smoothly. Specifically, leadership students from Terry Fox Secondary, Riverside Secondary, and Pinetree Secondary. Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club hosted the event and provided the venue for a delicious meal and silent auction. The tournament is a fundraiser for KidSport TriCities. We are proud to announce that $41,000 was raised to help students in our school district play sports both in school and the community. Thank you to all involved. See you next year!"
