“Sport is something beyond what you play in your backyard,” said Neil. “What I gained from my sport, I will carry through the rest of my life.”



The In Her Footsteps…Celebrating BC Women in Sport program recognizes extraordinary achievements and contributions by women to sport in British Columbia. New honourees are celebrated each October in conjunction with Women’s History Month.
