Duncan Paralympic skier confirmed for Canadian team going to Sochi
The ultimate dream has come true for Duncan’s Braydon Luscombe.
The official word came out Friday that Luscombe is going to Sochi, Russia for the Paralympic Games as a member of the Canadian Paralympic ski team.
Former Paralympic skier and family friend Gord Tuck from Lake Cowichan has long been an inspiration for Luscombe to follow his dreams.
A celebration burger and beer send-off is being held Friday, Feb. 7 at 6 p.m. at the Craig Street Brew Pub.
The cost is $20 per person. There will be a silent auction, with donations also most appreciated.
Tickets can be reserved by contacting Braydon’s mom Charmaine Luscombe by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 250-715-1330.
It’s hoped many people who know Braydon or have been part of his past, such as teachers, can attend to give him a big show of support.
