Diana Stevens was the former Executive Director of Athletics Manitoba who was tragically killed in an automobile accident in 2013.
Diana Stevens had a deep and passionate love of grassroots Track and Field in Manitoba. She loved what the sport could do for all children, how it encouraged healthy living, gave confidence to athletes, and gave athletes of any ability or age the opportunity to be a part of a team. Diana was an enormous supporter of the many Athletics Manitoba’s school based programs and the children that these programs impacted. Her passion to create a positive environment, help young athletes learn to train for Track and Field, and grow through sport were paramount in all the programs that she developed.
A fund was created in her honour and supports school based programs in the province. Each year elementary schools can apply to the Diana Stevens Legacy Fund to allow them to invest in their school programs. This Fund is designed to help offset the cost of participating in Track and Field; removing barriers to participation.
The Diana Stevens Legacy fund will help one school a year continue to live out Diana’s passion of reaching children through Track and Field .
