Chris Little

Years involved with Special Olympics: 4

Sport(s) you coach: Cross Country Skiing

How you became involved: A colleague connected me with SOBC when the board was looking for a new treasurer. The treasurer position was already filled but fortunately for me, the cross country ski program needed volunteers. It was a great opportunity to combine a love of skiing while supporting a fantastic program.

What do I like about coaching Special O athletes: I like the laughs that we have. We meet very early on Sunday mornings and it’s often dark and rainy but the athletes are always enthusiastic and ready to go.

Best accomplishments: Watching the athletes perform above their own expectations at the Kelowna qualifying meet last year.
