“It was a really big honour to be recognized and be part of such a large group of volunteers in Lethbridge. I feel like I just do a tiny part and it feels so good to be apart of something that’s bigger,” says Holley.

Guest speaker at the Gala was Scott Hill, who is the founder of Play On! Canada, an organization that currently holds the Guinness World Record for largest mass participation street sports event.

Also part of the volunteers that were recognized include University of Lethbridge student Talayna Ekeland, who last year alone, volunteers close to 600 hours at various organizations.

“There are so many great reasons to volunteer,” says Ekelund. “I choose to do so because I grew up learning the benefits of helping others and it is something I have always enjoyed doing.”
