JAMIE SHAW MEMORIAL FUND
"Sometimes in life things go wrong; it's how you deal with it. Sports give us the avenue to learn how to deal with it."
The Jamie Shaw Memorial Fund is charged with providing financial support for access to training and development for athletes and coaches in the Yukon. We will strive to honour Jamie's commitment to life long learning by providing financial support to those who need it most.
We hope to carry on Jamie’s legacy through The Jamie Shaw Memorial Foundation by assisting youth and coaches in the Yukon continue with their journey of personal development and life-long learning. The Fund will assist with the financial cost of athlete and coach development, and will provide for direct financial assistance for athletes to attend competitions. The selection process will consider financial need, existing community engagement and plans for reinvestment in the community, and applicants’ dedication to sport and commitment to improvement.
"It's not the result that is the big picture, it's how hard you try and the effort you put into everything."
