Table of Contents


Surrey, one of more than 83 communities to celebrate Spirit of BC Week 2007, held Family Active Day at the North Surrey Recreation Centre. There were a variety of pool Olympic-style activities for all ages, including noodle javelin, ice fishing, discus and hurdles. The emphasis was on achieving active living for all members of the family.

A free drop-in program was also provided throughout the day and the Surrey Fire Department offered information on cardio pulmonary resuscitation.

In addition, the 2nd annual Skate for Literacy helped raise awareness of literacy issues. The event opened with a skills competition by the Surrey Eagles hockey team, followed by a public skate with the Surrey Eagles along with demonstrations of sports such as sledge hockey and ringette. The Volunteer Development Program was also promoted at this event.

Spirit of BC is a province-wide program that involves 95 Spirit of BC committees, representing over 200 communities across the province. These committees support local programs and help create opportunities in sport and recreation, arts, literacy, volunteerism, business and tourism. The program is supported by the Province of British Columbia. Visit for more information.
