North Shore Sports Medicine founder shortlisted for national award
Paige Larson, founder of North Shore Sports Medicine, has been named one of three finalists for a prestigious national entrepreneurship award.
She's short-listed for the HKMB HUB Impact Award, one of six RBC Canadian Woman Entrepreneur Awards “which honour Canadian female entrepreneurs for being leaders and role models, and for encouraging the development of others.”
A total of 3,500 women across Canada have been nominated for this year's awards.
Lawson started North Shore Sports Medicine in 1987 and has grown her business to now include three clinics that have treated more than 80 patients over the past six years. Two years ago, Larson was voted businessperson of the year by the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce.
Her clinics have treated local and national team athletes, as well as Olympians and Paralympians.
“Treating patients is the core of our business,” Larson said in a release.“But our company also prides itself on supporting our community through education, support for events and teams, and aiding local charities.”
