Pemberton been successfully nominated for 2013 TSN Kraft Celebration Tour. The tour travels across Canada broadcasting live Sport Centre episodes from various communities. Right now Pemberton is in the early nominations stage. On June 30, twenty finalists (communities) will be announced live on TSN Sports Centre at which time a voting process will begin to narrow the finalists down to ten communities.
If Pemberton was to make into the final ten communities it would receive a $25,000 grant which would go towards upgrading the Pemberton BMX Track. The track has proven to be a very popular attraction for community members and has hosted several successful bike events thus far. The $25,000 would go a long way towards some much needed upgrades and upkeep of the track.
As of right now you can show you're support for the Pemberton nomination by leaving comments on the Kraft Celebration Pemberton BMX Page of the Kraft Celebrations website. Also continue to stay tuned on June 30, when TSN announces it's shortlist of nominations....
