RON’S MCIVER’S ROAD TO FAME

A Wall Covered with Medals. Ron McIvor, a long time member of CCB Prince George White Cane Club has a story to tell of past accomplishments. Ron became visually impaired following a severe motor vehicle accident in 1966. He joined the White Cane Club when he movd to Prince George B.C. The Club was first formed in Prince George in 1980 and he has been an active member ever since. He has been President at least 7 times over the years. Ron started skiing and training for competitions in 1993. At a luncheon at CNIB , a member from the sons of Norway asked if he would be interested in skiing, and that was the beginning of a long love for the sport. After his first “run” in a competition at Mount Washington where he won gold, he has never looked back and has completed every year since 1983. With a guide that is supplied host city, Ron has skied in Kamloops, Castlegar , Vernon, Kelowna , Regina , Edmonton, Saskatoon,, North Battleford, Kananaskis, and many more. He has always come home with medals. and most of them have been gold!! Six years, with financial help from the community, he competed in Oslo, Norway and again came home with 2 silver medals. Ron works out at the YMCA 5 times a week. as well as volunteering at the CNIB. He is member of the CNIB Board of directors, the ski for light Board and Nothern Interior Community Association. He also has done track and field as well as a Tandem cycling. all of which resulted in medals. His lack of vision, and competitive  spirit has not impeded him in his desire to show what the visually impaired can accomplish. May you continue in good health for many more years. We salute Ron!
