From the Columbia Valley to the Elk Valley: Game Changing community members were honoured at Awards Gala on September 22.
The Kootenay Game Changer Awards are a collaboration of local media (e-KNOW, Cranbrook Townsman, Kimberley Bulletin, Fernie Free Press, Total Country B104, 102.9 The Drive, GO Cranbrook, GO Kimberley, and Fernie Fix Magazine) to honour individuals around the Kootenays.
One of the categories for nomination was: Sports & Recreation Game Changer.
Of the several nominees in the category Mel & Rick McFarlane were chosen as the Game Changers.
A grateful congratulations goes out to Mel and Rick for their foresight and dedication to Sports and Recreation in our community and to the We Bike program.  Not only does the We Bike program promote healthy lifestyles, it also promotes biking safely and opens the door to many youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity to get involved with this mode of exercise and transportation.
