What: Two awards of $1000 each will be presented annually to two young orienteers that embody in life the virtues cultivated in training and competition. These funds are intended to help with the high cost of training, education and travel to events.1994 Outdoor Champs
Why: Iain “Dawg” Wilson stood for determination, drive, and the willingness to put in hard work…to go the extra mile. Not once in a while, but every day. He understood that where you start doesn’t have to define where you finish. Whether it was mastering orienteering, running a certain time on the track, becoming fluent in a new language, or developing the perfect bread recipe, once Iain put his mind to something, he would always find a way to meet his goal. While Iain’s life was tragically cut short in 2008, his legacy lives on through his family and friends. By creating this award, we strive to support young athletes in Iain’s sport of choice. Through this endeavor we hope we can help them develop their own character and sense of purpose.
Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 to support this program for at least 5 to 10 years. The first $5,500 received will be matched dollar-for-dollar by generous donors, doubling the impact of your gift! All contributions are tax-deductible and administered by Orienteering USA.
