The Sofie Manarin Nickel
Sofie was an incredible young
person who displayed all the attributes necessary
of a true champion. During her short five year
career she showed the promise of becoming one
of Canada’s top cross-country skiers. She
passed away June 3, 2001, at the age of 17 while
training for the upcoming season. Sofie was an
inspiration to all the young skiers in Sudbury,
Ontario and Canada. She started racing with Laurentian
Nordic Ski Club at the age of 12 under the coaching
direction of Dave Battison. During the 1995/96
season she earned her first of 13 National Championship
medals, a silver in the juvenile category against
skiers three years her senior. In 2000 Sofie was
selected to represent Canada at the World Junior
Championships in Poland, earning a 28th in the
15 km at the age of 16. She was later named to
the National Junior Team. “Sofie was a dedicated,
elite athlete committed to maximizing her potential.
She always gave 100%, but it was her delightful
sense of fun and “joie de vivre” which
made such an incredible impact on anyone with
whom she came in contact” commented Dave
Battison, her first coach.

Thank you Birch Box for the fantastic
to Mikaela Cheslock, our 2019 Student Award Winner
a second year student at Laurentian University
- Université Laurentienne, first heard
about the SudburyROCKS!!! Marathon while she was
in high school. Between specializing in Labour
Studies, minoring in Law and Justice, and curling
competitively, she also volunteers as a Race Marshall
for the SudburyROCKS!!! Marathon. In her spare
time, Mikaela volunteers at Health Sciences North
/ Horizon Santé-Nord and Ronald McDonald
House of Canada.
“For the past two years I have been volunteering
for the SudburyROCKS!!! Marathon as a Race Marshall.
Being able to help with an event that benefits
our community through the Northern Cancer Foundation
and Health Sciences North Foundation, is an amazing
experience. From my time volunteering at Health
Sciences North I see the impact and support that
each donation brings. Knowing that we, as a community,
can help support each cause through events such
as this motivates me to volunteer.``
like to thank SudburyROCKS!!! Marathon for awarding
me this bursary. It’s been able to help
me continue my studies and continue volunteering
in our community. Volunteering will always be
an important activity to me and I hope to be able
to help with this event for many years to come.
I encourage other Laurentian University students
to consider joining the race as a runner or as
a volunteer this year.”
