Max Gallant & Steve McBride - October 15, 2015


Sail Canada is proud to announce Max Gallant and Steve McBride (RVicYC) as recipients of a Petro-Canada “Fuelling Athletes and Coaching Excellence” funding. Petro-Canada, a Suncor business, annually awards 50 athlete and coach pairings with funding to help fuel their sport dreams.

“From coast to coast, Canada has many outstanding athletes and coaches and we’re honoured to support Tomorrow’s Team Canada,” said Marc Goodman, director, loyalty and strategic partnerships, Suncor. “Each year we’re inspired by the dedication of our FACE program recipients. Congratulations to the Class of 2015”

Working together with the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) and their National Sport partners, the FACE program provides developing, pre-carded, Canadian athlete and coach pairings with $10,000 in grants. These resources help athletes achieve national carded status and coaches improve their skills over the long term.

Petro-Canada has committed to a total annual financial commitment of $500,000 for every year of the program going forward.

Beginning with the Petro-Canada Torch Scholarship Fund in 1988 and continuing through its re-launch as the FACE Program in 2007, the program has provided more than 2,700 Canadian athletes and coaches with over $9.4 million in direct financial support. Recipients of the 2015 program funding represent both summer and winter sports and represent Canada from coast to coast.
