Grace Woodland is presented with Rebecca Pack award by Pack family

Skate Canada Newfoundland and Labrador hosted the 2010 Rebecca Pack Memorial Friendship Skate, on September 25th, 2010 at The Glacier, Mount Pearl.

In the spring of 2006 the Pack Family and the skating community lost a dear child and skater, Rebecca Pack. To celebrate Rebecca’s love of life and skating, the Pack Family have established in her memory “The Rebecca Pack Memorial Award”. This commemorative award in honour of Rebecca is presented annually at the Rebecca Pack Memorial Friendship Skate competition. The award is presented to the competitor, who in the opinion of the Competition Judges, demonstrates tenacity, a love of skating, and good sportsmanship, all of the endearing qualities we will remember when we think of Rebecca.

The recipient of “The Rebecca Pack Memorial Award” for 2010 is Grace Woodland, Mount Pearl SC (previous winners)
