Established by Bill Thompson. Bill, who was a former national champion in Masters-level middle distance running, and his wife Sandra were long-time supporters of running in the Sudbury community. They established this scholarship to continue that support. This award is presented to a student-athlete who is a member of the cross-country running and indoor track varsity program. The recipient must meet all eligibility criteria for CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) and AFA (Athletic Financial Award) guidelines. A recommendation from the team coach as well as the Director of Athletics is required. Value is variable.
