2019 VSR InTraining Program Leader Awards

2019 VSR InTraining Program Leader Awards

SportMedBC and the InTraining program are proud to announce that the 2019 Vancouver Sun Run InTraining Leader of the Year recipient is Stan Narayan! Stan, the Clinic Coordinator for the Cloverdale Clinic, has been with the program for over a decade. 
 
Below are some kind words from our InTraining Coach and his group on why the Cloverdale Clinic loves their leader.
 
"It's difficult to put into words the enthusiasm that Stan has brought to the program now for a dozen years...  This is a man whose warm smile and twinkle in his eyes wins us all over every time.  Sometimes it's just that kind of warmth that makes the difference when a leader asks a participant to put their best foot forward when they aren't sure they can.  Stan has the necessary practical experience to teach people how to walk and run, and goes beyond the call of duty organizing extra-curriculars around the clinic, but it's how he leads from the heart that sets him apart." – Lynn Kanuka
 
“He has shown an overabundance of enthusiasm, motivation, and support for all of us in Cloverdale. Always making sure we have a fun and purposeful time each day we have our clinic.” – Participant
 
“Super supportive and motivating. He actually takes the time to get to know the team and their abilities. Always welcoming for everyone. He is the reason I can run 10K today.” – Participant
 
“Stan has brought our group together into one big family! He has created a Facebook page, ran two pot luck dinners, had a pub night, gave away Swag, invited interesting guests, formulated a fun music-orientated warm-up, and has provided incredible positive encouragement to every single runner!!!” – Participant
