FIT Award Winners 2020

This year’s FIT awards went to three very deserving women who kept us safe, motivated and active throughout a very trying year.

Volunteer of the year went to Jean Chesson who leads the Safe Return to Training Advisory Group, keeping us COVID-safe as we returned to training (and social events).

Coach of the year was too tough to call, and the committee decided to award this jointly to Jill Wisbey and Di Evans for the social and fitness connections they fostered throughout the COVID shutdown.

Congratulations!

Jean Chesson, Jill Wisbey
