In collaboration with Bill Fenton, Nakkertok is pleased to announce the ‘The Fenton Nakkertok Bursary Program’ to help young athletes participate in the Nakkertok Racing Program and Adventure Program. The bursaries will be awarded to athletes who require financial assistance to offset the cost of participating in the Nakkertok programs. 

The bursaries are open to athletes registered in the Adventure Program and the Race Program, up to Junior/U18 level.  The bursary amount will be $500 for athletes in the Adventure Program and Racing Rabbit program. For U14-U18 athletes in the Racing Program, the amount will be $1000.

To apply, please send an email to clubmanager@nakkertok.ca with the following information:

  • Name of athlete
  • Program level
  • Household income
  • Number of children enrolled in ski programs

A committee will review all bursary requests and inform recipients in early September. Unfortunately, due to the limitations of funds not all requests may be fulfilled.

Nakkertok would like to thank Bill Fenton for the generous donation that has made this bursary program possible. Bill’s goal is to encourage more children to participate in cross-country skiing.  The intent is for this to be an annual program to allow for multi year funding of athletes.
