Chris Raduy one of six Island athletes awarded grants by Mountain Sports Society

Chris Raduy, a 15-year-old alpine ski racer from Qualicum Beach, is one of six recipients awarded $500 grants by the Vancouver Island Mountain Sports Society for the 2016-17 season.

Raduy will be training in the U16 Ski Alpine Racing Program and appreciates the support his grant will provide.

“There are significant costs involved as the team must travel off the Island often to train and compete,” he said.

Raduy was named the Most Improved Racer in the U14 division in the 2014-15 Mount Washington Ski Club season.

Other winners of the grants, which were awarded during the VIMSS annual general meeting Nov. 22, are cross-country skiers Tallon Noble and Matthew Salmon of Courtenay and Ross Lamon of Comox; snowboard cross competitor Desmond Debelle of Comox; and freestyle skier Dillan Glennie of Courtenay.

The grants help young athletes to offset the costs associated with travelling off-island for advanced training and competition.
