Name: Brad Spence
Sport: Alpine Skiing
Hometown: Calgary, AB
Favorite Sports Memory:
Finishing 13th in the Kranjska Gora World Cup Slalom in Feb 09 starting from bib number 56. It was my first ever World Cup slalom, and my first World Cup event back since breaking my leg in a World Cup downhill in Bormio, Italy in 2005.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going
CAN Fund Testimonial:
Having CAN Fund to help offset my costs as an Alpine Skier is HUGE. In order to excel in the sport of Alpine Skiing requires full-time commitment and having a part-time job is more or less impossible. To have a fund that goes directly to offset the athletes personal costs is imperitive to us. Recieving this fund will definitely help relieve the financial stresses in my life and allow me to instead focus on standing on top of the podium.
13th place Kranjska Gora World Cup Slalom
I was an RBC Olympian this past year and had the opportunity to take the Olympic Torch into different communities and speak about the Olympics and my sport. I will never forget this experience. Seeing the faces of both kids and adults light up when they got the opportunity to hold the torch was absolutely priceless.
