Volunteer Karen Theriault has been awarded the Jim Thompson Award by Special Olympics Canada in recognition of 17 years of work with Special Olympics BC.

Theriault, a coordinator with Special Olympics Surrey, has filled close to every role within the local program. She has been the chair for the annual Surrey Soccer Tournament and has served as team manager for teams attending provincial, national and world events.

“Theriault’s leadership and athlete-centered approach has earned her the admiration and respect of athletes, coaches, and volunteers alike,” Special Olympic Canada stated on their website.
