Despite having to deal with the daily struggle of life with ulcerative colitis, Denise Coutts hasn’t allowed that to slow her down.

She’s a champion of sports, and is incredibly active in the volunteer community.

She has served on a staggering number of sport committees including Basketball BC, Squash BC, Badminton BC and BC Disability Sports.

The nominees were:

• Bev Oldham—an active volunteer in the sports community since 1970, she serves on the Richmond Curling Club’s board of directors.

• Casey Rodusek—as referee in chief for Richmond Ravens Female Hockey Association for the past six years, she’s described as independent, trustworthy, local and a good role model.

• Val Skelly—organized a world record attempt for the longest hockey game by rallying together 40 women and raised $200,000 for Cystic Fibrosis
