Schöck Canada “survives” Rankin’s 2011 Keep the Spirit Co-Ed Beach Volleyball Tournament…von Christian Witt
Schöck Canada Inc. is very proud to have been part of the 9th Annual Keep the Spirit Co-Ed (4’s) Beach Volleyball Tournament hosted by the St. Catharines Firefighters. This year’s tournament took place on Saturday, July 16th at the “Not So Pro” Sandbox at Lock 3 in St. Catharines. As in previous years, all proceeds will be donated to the Rankin Cancer Run.
The Rankin Cancer Run is a charity event, which focuses on funding cancer care in the Niagara Region. In the first five years, the run has raised just under $2,000,000. All of this money went right back into the local community.
Every year, they seek sponsors for the tournament. Schöck Canada decided to support this good cause for the second time in a row. And this year we also registered a team for the recreational competition.
NSP Sandbox at Lock 3
We survived an extremely hot day under the sun (approx. 35°C). The sand was burning. Our feet developed huge blisters… But we made it up to Quarterfinals! The members of our team were Laurie Snow, Stefanie Witt, Kevin Jüngel and myself.

We are all looking forward to playing again next year. The goal is Finals!
Yours truly, Christian Witt B.
