Investors Group donates to Vancouver Island Society for Adaptive Snowsports

Investors Group knows and appreciates that despite the challenging winter conditions, lack of snow and Mount Washington’s early closure, the Vancouver Island Society for Adaptive Snowsports (VISAS) taught as many students as they could – a total of 1,640 hours worth of lessons.

This included their annual snowsports festival for individuals of all ages and abilities, and the National Veterans Festival which saw 39 Canadian Forces members from across the country participating in snowsports. (A pretty good effort for a winter season that lasted only eight weeks).

Investors Group recognizes the hard work and dedication of these VISAS volunteer instructors who teach students with disabilities seven days a week, in a variety of disciplines including Nordic skiing, alpine skiing and snowboarding.  One of their own employees, Chris Nagle, the division director of Investors Group, is an adaptive Nordic instructor.  During the winter weekends, Nagle volunteers his time to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to learn Nordic skiing.

The Investors Group wanted to recognize Nagle’s volunteer contribution and recently donated a generous $500 to the organization.
