Comox Valley Athletic Association forms cycling race team

The Comox Valley Athletic Association (CVAA) is a non-profit sports organization raising funds for Comox Valley youth who cannot afford travelling costs and equipment for their chosen sports.

Founder Dr. Peter Parke, who was voted Coach of the Year in The Comox Valley Record’s 2016 Local Hero Awards, has been providing assistance for sports such as rugby, basketball and lacrosse. This year a group of  competitive cyclists formed the CVAA cycling race team, spearheaded by Daniel Wilson.

Their goal was to gain more awareness of the CVAA in the Valley and also to raise funds through the assistance of team sponsors. It was a truly successful year for the team and for results on and off the island.

The CVAA team thanks some of their sponsors: Enecon Alberta, Fit Chiropractic, Comox Fire and Rescue, Riverway Dental, North Island Urology, Milanos, Dynamic Sports and Wellness, Tsolum Mobile Vet and Campfire Social.
