John has truly made a difference for Special Olympics British Columbia (SOBC). Recognizing and celebrating this, John’s friends and associates have sought to honour him by launching the John Sims Fund to ensure the continuation of his vision and support of SOBC.
It’s been several months in the making, with John’s business associates, family, colleagues, and friends from many areas of his life coming together to support the idea. The first fund appeal was issued to friends, family, and fans of John’s at the beginning of March, and by the month’s end, donations in John’s honour totalled more than $60,000.
John, we congratulate you on this well deserved honour.
