Whistler Adaptive Sports House at Dubh Linn Gate

The Dubh Linn Gate, located in the Pan Pacific Mountainside, recently announced the creation of Whistler Adaptive Sports House for the Paralympic Games, which run March 12th to 21st, 2010. All of the proceeds collected through the fundraising efforts during the Paralympic Games will be directed to the creation of the new Jeff Harbers Adaptive Sports Centre.

“We are so excited about the creation of Whistler Adaptive Sports House,” said Chelsey Walker, Whistler Adaptive Sports Program’s Executive Director. “The Dubh Linn Gate has stepped up to not only create a fun Games-time “House” for our athletes, volunteers and supporters to gather, they have pledged to raise much needed funds and help create a major legacy for individuals with a disability in Whistler.”

“We are most pleased and honoured to be in partnership with Whistler Adaptive Sports Program and to have a role in debuting the Whistler Adaptive Sports House for the Paralympic Games,” commented Chris Marshall, Dubh Linn Gate Manager. “We are working hard to encourage our guests to take part in this momentous occasion as we raise funds to help support the new Jeff Harbers Adaptive Sports Centre.

The Dubh Linn Gate and Pan Pacific have been actively raising funds through the lead up to and during the Olympic Games. To date, they have raised $2,300, according to Walker.
