The Royal Canadian Legion and the Ladies Auxiliary of BC/Yukon Command received $15,000 from the Township of Langley to help host the 2013 and 2014 Legion National Youth Track and Field Championships.
The championships, which will be held in the Township for two years in a row, will see more than one thousand 14-to 17-year-olds vie to be named among the best Canadian track and field athletes.
"We are really excited to be hosting these
Championships in our community," said Mayor Jack Froese.
The Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club will
host the competition, which will return to the Township in the summer of 2014.
