The Telus Whistler Sports Centre was created to help athletes reach their potential, in sports and in life. In keeping with this theme, the centre has donated two laptop computers to Whistler Secondary School for students in the sport school programs.
"We asked how we could best help the sport school and this was the one thing we could do," said Todd Allison, the general manager of the Telus Whistler Sports Centre. "These computers help our student athletes for the next few years."
The donation of the computers was made possible by the Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation through the sports centre and the LegaciesNow program. Legacies Now was created to provide things the athletes need now if they are going to be Olympians, rather than after the Games are awarded.
The next project being planned, the Student Athlete Achievement Program, will be introduced in the next few months.
