George & Jane Hungerford

George & Jane Hungerford

Recipient
Vancouver, British Columbia

Jane’s record of volunteer service is enormous. For the Salvation Army, Jane has volunteered since 1985 as fundraiser, board member, and recently a task force member focusing on raising awareness of Human Sexual Trafficking. The BC Cancer Foundation, Science World and the UBC Alumni Association all have thrived because of Jane’s energy, determination, passion and ability to bring people together. It must be said in this Olympic year that George Hungerford is a 1964 gold medalist in rowing. As a true Olympian, George has gone on to serve his community with distinction. Chair of the Greater Vancouver Advisory Board of the Salvation Army and the first chair of the Pacific Salmon Foundation, George has taken a leadership role in fundraising for the UBC Rowing Boathouse, BC Cancer Research Centre, and has served as a distinguished member of the Board of Governors and President’s Council of Simon Fraser University.
