Coast Capital Savings committed to a three-year corporate partnership to support the B.C. Summer and Winter Games, beginning with the 2014 Summer Games in Nanaimo.
The credit union will be the official financial institution of the Games. The investment delivers on the organization’s promise to help youth in its communities, said Wendy Lachance, director of community leadership.
Included in the partnership is an awards program, which has been created to offer financial support to B.C.’s young athletes over the next three Games. The awards will provide 16 athletes with a $500 Coast Capital Savings bursary for their educational and athletic pursuits.
The Nanaimo 2014 BC Summer Games will take place July 17-20 and will feature up to 3,900 athletes, coaches and officials from across British Columbia. Competition will take place in 19 sports at venues throughout the Nanaimo area.
