Respect Group: Proud Sponsor of USport Soccer Nationals/Scholarship Breakfast
Sheldon Kennedy, Co-Founder of Respect Group, will be the guest speaker at the WolfPack’s fourth Annual Scholarship Breakfast on Thursday, September 28th, and he will host a special screening of the documentary Swift Current the evening before.
Kennedy commented: “I think these events give Respect Group and TRU an opportunity to show collective leadership within the University sports community. Beyond that, I think it sets the stage for Kamloops to demonstrate to other Canadian cities why being the Tournament Capital of Canada comes with a responsibility to really be the best.” Ken Olynyk, Director of Athletics and Recreation said “Having Respect Group (Sheldon Kennedy) come on as a sponsor for the men’s soccer nationals speaks volumes about the connection and importance of the work that is so imperative in sport, the workplace and our community. I know Sheldon will have a great message for our WolfPack Scholarship Breakfast and truly understands the connection between sport and life.” The USport Men’s Soccer Nationals will be hosted by TRU at Hillside Stadium November 9-12th. Information on that event and the 4th annual WolfPack Scholarship breakfast are available on the TRU website: www.gowolftpack.tru.ca
