Grant Opportunity – Rising Stars BC SuperSeries Season Pass

Triathlon BC recognizes the economic barriers facing families pursuing the performance pathway, and the need for financial aid to support the development of young, performance bound athletes across the province. The Rising Star Grant is made possible by the generous donations from passionate business leaders investing in our sport at the inaugural Fundraising Gala which was held on August 9th, 2018.
