2010 Athlete of the Year AwardUpdated Thursday March 3, 2016 by Kitchener Sports Association.
Congratulations to Andrew Poje and Kaitlyn Weaver, KW and area Athletes of the Year for 2010.
The 13th Annual Athlete of the Year Award was presented to Ice Dancers Andrew Poje & Kaitlyn Weaver at the awards event held May 25, 2011 at the Woolwich Memorial Centre in Elmira. (Andrew’s father, Bill Poje, actually accepted the award as the pair are currently training in the U.S.)
The event not only recognizes the accomplishments of local athletes from the communities of Kitchener, Waterloo, Wellesley, Wilmot and Woolwich, but also raises money for Camp McGovern. (Over $40,000 has now been raised by this event over the past seven years.) This enables youth who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend camp to enjoy the camping experience through subsidized fees.
