Helping the Future
Supporting the future of snowboarding is as important as the present. I will be making a donation to two women who I believe will be the future of halfpipe in Canada. Donation size will be dependant on the success of this fundraiser
When Becca Ballantyne was 10 years old, she watched Maelle Ricker win a gold medal in boardercross. She then turned to her mother and said "Mom, someday I'm going to do that. I'm going to win a medal for Canada in snowboarding!" Becca soon went to Halfpipe where she learned to "fly"!
In March 2017, Becca was chosen to represent Canada at the World Junior Championships in Switzerland, where she came in 8th. This fall Becca took a big step and applied to, and got accepted at, the National Sports School in Calgary, and joined the WinSport Halfpipe Team.
Becca is still looking to go to the Olympics, hoping that 2022 will be her year to represent Canada.
Second recipient TBA
