McGrath Receives Amateur Athletes Fund Bursary
AthletesCAN, the association of Canada's national team athletes, is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2007 Team Investors Group Amateur Athletes Fund Bursary. Mountain biker Seamus McGrath is one of the recipients.
In keeping with their commitment to amateur sport in Canada, Investors Group established an Amateur Athlete Bursary Fund for Canada's top amateur athletes. A national leader in delivering personalized financial solutions to Canadians, Investors Group annually awards twenty $5,000 bursaries to assist Canada's elite amateur athletes with the costs of training and competition. Selection criteria includes: athletic achievement, financial need and community involvement. AthletesCAN administers the bursary on behalf of Investors Group.
"Being involved in the community is a fundamental part of being a national team athlete and this year's bursary recipients are great examples of how athletes can make a difference both on and off the playing field," says AthletesCAN CEO Guy Tanguay. "AthletesCAN is proud to partner with Investors Group each year to recognize the efforts of some of our country's top athletes in their sports and in their communities. We thank Investors Group for the continual leadership and support they provide to Canada's amateur athletes."
"Team Investors Group Amateur Athletes Fund bursaries acknowledge achievement but, even more importantly, they celebrate the hard work and dedication required to reach the highest goals," said Richard Irish, Assistant Vice-President, Community Affairs for Investors Group.
