Two remarkable women from the world of volleyball and softball will be honored by ProMOTION Plus on October 22 at the annual In Her Footsteps event at the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club.
This event to celebrate BC women in sport will honor long time softball athlete/coach/builder Jo Mathieson of North Vancouver and volleyball coach/builder Sandy Silver.
The event honors women athletes, coaches, officials, judges, pioneers or advocates who have made significant contributions to girls and women in sport and physical activity. These women have created opportunities for participation in sport and recreation in British Columbia, inspiring others through their own achievement, passion and dedication. Their stories are featured in the In Her Footsteps exhibit at the BC Sports Hall of Fame.
