ParaFed Canterbury celebrated another successful year at their Awards Function held at the Links Function Centre, Christchurch Golf Course on Saturday 30th November 2019.
Sophie Pascoe was named the 2019 ParaFed Canterbury Sportsperson of the Year for the 11th time after another outstanding year, including four gold medals at the World Para Swimming Championships in September.
Cherie Porter was awarded ParaFed Canterbury Life Membership after 20+ years of service to ParaFed Canterbury and wheelchair rugby. Kayne Tukapua was awarded the Phil Humphreys Most Valued Volunteer Award in recognition of his five years involvement working with our Para swimmers and Junior Team.
