Sport Council is deeply saddened by the passing of Karen Lidster. Karen passed away December 10, 2021, leaving behind many loving friends and family.
As a long time resident of North Vancouver and West Vancouver, Karen was well known for her selfless contribution to the promotion and development of sports on the North Shore. In 2001, Karen co-founded KidSports North Shore, along with Sport Council member Tom Walker, and was by every measure a "hands on", involved, and committed volunteer. She remained as Co-Chair until very recently, completely dedicated to ensuring that all North Shore kids have the chance to play.
The North Shore chapter of KidSports is a charitable organization established to provide funding to financially challenged youth, in order to enable their participation in organized sport on the North Shore.
Karen also served on the Board of the North Vancouver Sports Advisory Council and was involved with many initiatives designed to improve access to sports for all North Shore residents.
The North Shore community, and in particular our youth, have lost a strong and dedicated advocate. Karen will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Karen's memory would be honoured by a donation to KidSports North Shore or to any other charity of choice.
We love our athletes, so feel free to connect with us anytime !
