Mr. Considine has been deeply impacted by sport and physical activity throughout his life and understands the value of high performance sport in developing youth. He also understands the great need for young athletes to receive financial support to assist them on their journeys of sport excellence. This generous bursary will support one youth athlete (ages 13 to 18) training in Greater Victoria, B.C., in the sports of climbing, cycling or running with a $1000 award that may assist with travel, food, training or any needs that may arise while training and competing to be the best.
“Victoria youth with outstanding national and international athletic potential need financial support from all of us. I hope that the successful candidates will be an inspiration for the students in our community to exercise and to engage in sport. The old adage of a healthy mind in a healthy body is essential to healthy community.” ~ Chris Considine
Accomplishments in sport, education and volunteerism will be assessed in the applications. Furthermore, financial need will be assessed.
