Chance to win breakfast or lunch date with Walter

One lucky person will get to win a date with former NHL player Ryan Walter

Abbotsford Heat president Ryan Walter is the guest speaker at a LeaderImpact event in Langley on Oct. 2.

A brief description of why sportsmanship is important could net one lucky winner either breakfast or lunch with Ryan Walter.

To enter the draw, an email of 50 words or less must explain ‘Why sportsmanship is vital in building young leaders today.’

Entries can be sent to sportsmanship@telus.net.

The contest is being run by LeaderImpact and is in celebration of October being National Manners and Character Month.

LeaderImpact is a Langley-based group which exists to help business leaders reach their full potential while leading lives of balance and significance.

Walter will speak at a pair of LeaderImpact events on Oct. 2 — a 7 a.m. breakfast at the Sandman Signature Hotel (8828 201. St) and then at a lunch at noon at the Ramada Plaza Abbotsford Hotel and Conference Centre (36035 North Parallel Rd.)

“As Ryan Walter is known and loved both as an outstanding athlete, a powerful and inspiring motivational speaker as well as a gentleman and a man of character and integrity, we are honour to have Ryan speak to our business and community leaders,” said Judi Vankevich, the chief executive officer of the Canadian Centre for Manners and Civility.

Walter played in more than 1,100 National Hockey League games with Washington, Montreal and Vancouver. He won a Stanley Cup with Montreal.

He has also coached at the NHL level and is currently the president of the American Hockey League’s Abbotsford Heat.

And on Thursday (Oct. 3), Buono will be at the first annual Life of Significance Golf Classic at Tsawwassen’s Beach Grove Golf Club.

The tournament is in support of Athletes in Action Pro Ministries and LeaderImpact.

Buono, a former CFL player and head coach, is the general manager and vice-president of the B.C. Lions.

“We hope to bring business and community leaders from across Metro Vancouver to not just have a great game of golf, but to develop friendships with meaningful conversations on the course and over dinner,” said Russ Swaim, LeaderImpact’s events and golf tournament co-ordinator.

“Leaders crave significance that goes beyond money, status and power.”
