Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Alfred Wong, including his Hyack Swim Club teammates. Alfred was the 15-year-old passenger in his parents’ car who was tragically, horrifically, and senselessly killed in the crossfire of an apparent targeted slaying of an alleged drug dealer this past weekend in Vancouver.
Our most heartfelt condolences go out to those close to Alfred, as well as his family, as they struggle to come to terms with their sudden and painful loss.
Hyack Swim Club will be establishing a memorial scholarship in his name. For those wishing to donate, an update will be posted on how they can contribute to honouring the memory of this young man.
