“At least 16 heroes will be selected from all regions of B.C. in four rounds leading up to the Games in February 2015,” says Kazuko Komatsu, owner and CEO of PWB. “We started this program in 2002 and we have supported many young athletes and other community heroes whose extraordinary endeavours inspire us all.”

Application to the Hometown Heroes program is open to any B.C. resident currently engaged in sports as an athlete or coach, or otherwise excelling in a community mentoring activity. Applicants must be at least 19 years old. Candidates will demonstrate outstanding sportsmanship; proven interest, ability and passion in the pursuit of their sport; a dedication to their learning with a strong track record of academic success; and, a well- rounded lifestyle including community involvement.
