An Olympic effort

One of the young women staying in our ROP program had the wonderful opportunity of building the medal podiums for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. As part of VANOC and Rona’s Fabrication Shop (Fab Shop as Carmen called it), the partnership between VANOC and RONA provided young people with the training to build over 11,000 woodem items used throughout the Olympic Games in Vancouver.

Carmen began working with "Fab Shop" last October and was sworn to secrecy: despite being asked repeatedly by fellow ROP youth, Carmen was not allowed to say what she working on. It wasn’t until she watched the first medal ceremony on TV with the rest of the ROP youth did she fully realize what she had been a part of; needless to say, she was thrilled with results and very proud to have played her part in the success of the Games.

Congratulations Carmen on your part in "owning the podium"!
