Heroines can change the world, was the message at the celebration of the 2007 honorees for IN HER FOOTSTEPS.CELEBRATING BC WOMEN IN SPORT, a recognition program and exhibit celebrating BC women in sport, housed at the BC Sports Hall of Fame and Museum.
Honoree Margaret Maxwell Callaghan, Minister Ida Chong, Irene Schell, Lorraine Greaves and Honoree Sandra Stevenson
From creating healthy bodies to teaching cooperation, fair play and ethics, involvement in sports and physical fitness helps girls and women in both body and spirit. The IN HER FOOTSTEPS exhibit honors those women who embody excellence in sport and fitness, whether through their own performance, or by enabling others to participate and excel. As honoree Sandra Stevenson said, I fundamentally believe that sports can change the world.
This year, Helen and Margaret Callaghan, Kathy Shields and Sandra Stevenson join 34 previous honorees in the permanent exhibit celebrating women who have made a difference through sports for girls and women in British Columbia, whether through their own athletic excellence or by increasing opportunities for others.
