Special Olympians at RA for CF24 Launch

19 October 2015

Only a few days left until our #RAthletes participate in another exciting year of CF|24! We can officially introduce the two Special Olympic athletes who will be joining us this Saturday, October 24th for a workout and some encouragement.

John Chen is a local athlete who competes regionally and provincially in floor hockey and softball – next year he’ll be playing at his first national championship for floor hockey! John thoroughly enjoys sports of all kinds but especially loves our own Vancouver Canucks.

Alison Rodrigues is a long-time local athlete who has competed in both the Summer and Winter Special Olympics, as well as the BC Summer and Winter Games! She trains in some very exciting sports, like track and field, weight training and running, and is currently training alongside John for the 2016 National Winter Games in floor hockey!

We are so excited to have John and Alison join us this Saturday. It’s an absolute honor to have 2 decorated athletes at Raincity and to train alongside them!

Come out and say hello at 9am!

Simon is the Head Coach and Owner of Raincity Athletics. “Discovering a new level of health has changed my life, not only in how I look feel and perform, but how I feel about myself both inside and out. I want to help as many people as I can discover their ‘athlete within’ no matter what level that may be, which is why I love our slogan: Find Your Fit. Our bodies are nicer than any car, house, or pet we’ll ever own, and yet we constantly abuse them like we can buy another one if it breaks. I strongly believe if we can maximize our physical health and performance it will have a positive affect on our lives in more ways than anyone can imagine.”
