Bill and Linda Clark Sports Fund
Bill & Linda Clark are long time Mission residents who have been involved in our community in various ways. Linda worked as an advertising sales and marketing representative for the Mission Record and Bill was a realtor for more than 30 years.
Bill also played on the UBC Thunderbirds Volleyball team that took the Canadian University (CIAU) title in 1967. This earned them a spot in the 1967 World Student Games in Tokyo. It was in Tokyo that the team helped change the game in Canada and in 2002 the team was inducted into the UBC Sports Hall of Fame. In 2018 the team, including Bill and three other teammates from Mission, were recognized as pioneers in the sport when they were inducted into the Volleyball BC Hall of Fame.
Linda’s hobbies are of an artistic nature. She’s an accomplished actor, singer, an artist, loves to enjoy Mother Nature whenever possible, and volunteers at the Clarke Theatre. Linda joined the Mission Community Foundation Board of Directors in 2017 and through her work on the Board saw a need for a sporting fund. With her husband’s affinity for sports, it made sense to create a fund that would assist young children in finding healthy alternatives to video games and boredom.
This fund was created for children in grades K to 12, to provide funding for equipment and coaching upgrades (excluding wages) for minor boys and girls sports in Mission.
If you’d like to help to provide equipment and trained coaching for minor sports, donate today!
