Big Haul for UNBC T-Wolves Legacy Breakfast
Prince George, B.C. – This year’s third annual UNBC Timberwolves Legacy Breakfast was the most successful yet bringing in over $54,000.
Stanley Cup Champion and Olympic gold medallist Theo Fleury gave the keynote speech titled “Don’t Quit Before the Miracle” in front of 500 people at the Charles Jago Northern Sport Centre Feb.7.
All proceeds from the event will go directly to scholarships and bursaries for Timberwolves athletes.
“Without scholarships and bursaries, we would not be able to attract the best student athletes to UNBC,” says Loralyn Murdoch, UNBC’s athletic director. “It is so important for our coaches to go out into the community, or the province, nationally or internationally, and provide students with some funding.”
Last year’s event, featuring CFL star Michael “Pinball” Clemons, raised $52,000. The inaugural event, featuring five-time Olympic medallist Hayley Wickenheiser, raised over $40,000.
