The Langley Gymnastics Foundation (LGF) is marking the 25th edition of the annual Christy Fraser Memorial Invitational (CFMI) at the Langley Events Centre (LEC) this weekend.
Over 700 athletes from across the province are attending to showcase their skills.
Christy Fraser passed away in August of 1992, at just 12 years of age, after contracting E. Coli.
The event started in 1993 at the prompting of one of Christy’s coaches with the LGF, with a trophy given to the bravest athlete.
Athlete levels include: WAG JO 1 – 10, Aspire 1 and 2, MAG Level 1 – 3, Boys Interclub Performance, Boys Interclub Performance Plus, Girls Interclub, Girls Interclub Performance Plus, Girls Interclub Performance Challenge.
Christy’s mother, Lory Fraser, is an active volunteer and board member at Langley Gymnastics, and each year she watches every competitive session at CFMI to select athletes to receive the Christy Fraser Memorial Award, an award she gives to athletes who display the same positive, determined, and supportive attitude that Christy had.
There are vendors and food on site.
