Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club member Brahm Desai shows off one of the club’s four new Laser kayaks, bought using part of the $10,000 received from a 2014 Kamloops Blazers Sports Society grant.
The money was also used by the club to buy 27 paddles and 20 life jackets. “
This local funding has allowed KCKC to maintain its equipment and attract highly qualified coaching to Kamloops,” said Jeff Morgan, club treasurer. “We are the envy of canoe-and-kayak clubs throughout the province.”
The sports society handed out $338,000 in grants. For more information on the KCKC, go online to kamloopscanoeandkayakclub.ca.
