After being on the road for the first few months of the new calendar year competing on the ice climbing world cup circuit, Gord McArthur is back home in Cranbrook.
As an athlete competing against the best in the world in his particular sport, McArthur has needed—and received—all kinds of support, including financial help and sponsorship from the Cranbrook and Kimberley community.
“It’s kind of hard to single out businesses and people because so many business and so many people came together to help me in this adventure, this dream,” said McArthur. “That I’m unbelievably grateful for, just how well this community came together to support me.
“Those people will know who they are and I can’t say thank you enough for that.”
