A major nordic ski event is garnering support.

The provincial government’s Hosting B.C. program is providing $2,500 to the Sovereign Lake Nordic Club for the International Ski Federation Haywood NorAm races Dec. 12 and 13.

“This program funds high-calibre events that support the development of our amateur athletes,” said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA.

Sport organizations throughout B.C. will share $129,500 in the latest round of program funding from Hosting B.C.

These grants will help support the setup and operation of provincial and club championships, tournaments and tour stops for sports such as little league baseball, handball, fencing, wrestling, biathlon, gymnastics, skating, soccer, cross-country skiing and snowboarding.
