BC Para Swimmer & Coach Win FACE Grant
September 22, 2020
Congratulations Jacob Brayshaw and Renate Terpstra, from KISU, on being selected to Petro-Canada’s Fuelling Athlete and Coaching Excellence (FACE™) Program! The FACE Program supports up-and-coming athletes when they need it most: when they are striving to represent Canada at the Olympic or Paralympic Games, but don’t yet qualify for government funding.
This year’s class of FACE grant recipients from across Canada represents over 40 different summer and winter sports in both individual and team events. These 55 promising Canadian athlete and coach pairs each receive a $10,000 grant to support their training and help them reach their Olympic and Paralympic goals. Since 1988, Petro-Canada has supported over 3000 Canadian athletes and their coaches by providing more than $12,000,000 in financial support.
