Our Donald Cousens Community Impact Award.
This award is presented to an individual or organization that has shown sustained support to and advocated for good Character development in our community of York Region.
Donald Cousens has been instrumental not only in the establishment of our Foundation but also in the continued development and ongoing expansion of our profile across York Region.
His unwavering support and guidance has been invaluable to us and this Award is being established to honour his endeavors as well as those others who have leant their own support, resources and networks to increase our education and awareness initiatives throughout York Region.
Sadly Don passed away in Feb of 2017 and we honoured his legacy and stewardship of Character Community at our 2017 Character Awards in April.
