Judy Tutty wins Volunteer Achievement Award

Judy Tutty wins Volunteer Achievement Award

CanoeKayak Canada would like to congratulate Judy Tutty on winning the
Volunteer Achievement Award for the True Sport Foundation’s Canadian
Sport Awards. Judy has been volunteering with CanoeKayak for 40 years
and has made a tremendous impact on Canadian sport.

“I have known Judy Tutty since I was an athlete, and I cannot think of
anybody more deserving of this award,” said Peter Giles, Commodore of
CKC. “She has given a lifetime of dedication to our sport in the most
generous spirit imaginable. Through her dedication to our Officials
Committee and our Trophies and Awards Committees, among other
activities, she has created an incredible legacy for our paddling
community across Canada.”

Judy recently retired as the Flag Officer for the Western Ontario
Division of CanoeKayak Canada after 20 years in the volunteer leadership
role. Her retirement last fall officially makes her the longest sitting
Flag Officer in the Canadian paddling system. As Chair of CKC’s
Officials Committee for nearly 20 years, Judy was instrumental in
developing an officiating program regarded as the benchmark for national
programs around the world.

Judy’s volunteer accomplishments have gone a long way in developing
CanoeKayak as a sport. She has sat on countless boards and committees,
acted as chief official at multiple National Championships and was
instrumental in starting South Niagara Canoe Club.

“I was truly honoured to be considered for the Award,” said Judy.
“CanoeKayak Canada is an outstanding National Sport Organization and it
was a pleasure to do what I could to assist it in a sport that has been
good to me and my family – and continues to be. This award is to be
shared with other volunteers who have been helpful through the years.”

Adam van Koeverden was also in the running for the 39th Canadian Sport
Awards. He was a finalist for Male Athlete of the Year which was awarded
to figure skater, Patrick Chan. For a full list of winners, click here

Judy and Adam on their successes.
