NYSEF athlete, Jonny Kellock passed away this winter after his battle with brain cancer.
The information below comes from the Jonny Kellock Foundation:
The newly formed, Jonny Kellock Foundation was founded as a legacy entity for our friend and teammate who battled cancer with courage and grit. Jonny was a beloved member of each community he inhabited. The ever-confident, passionate and charismatic athlete, son, brother and teammate evolved into an integral coach at Whistler Mountain Ski Club. We wish to endow the essence of Jonny’s ethos unto the communities that he served. A bursary will be granted to a young, passionate Canadian coach to expand their coaching expertise and development in joining the Canadian National Ski Team on a summer/fall training camp abroad. In doing so, the selected individual will integrate and instill their new found experience unto their athletes and community.
Although everyone would like to celebrate Jonny together while raising funds for the Foundation, Covid-19 has made it increasingly difficult to host an in person fundraising event.
In lieu of a formal gathering, the Jonny Kellock Foundation has elected to host and challenge YOU to a remote, virtual event on his 29th birthday, March 30, 2021.
If you are able to support the Foundation, please make a donation through this link.
The memorial tribute is to go ski, golf, bike or do 29 of something at your local resort, course, trail, etc. Do it for Jonny Boy!!
