It is with tremendously broken hearts that we share the devastating news that our Co-Founder of Marpole Adaptive Soccer, Arley McNeney (Cruthers), has passed away.
Arley was a huge part of the driving force behind the creation, care and attention to detail of our Adaptive soccer team. She was a powerful educator, she generously gave her time and shared her brilliant ideas to make this program the best it could be. We are privileged to have worked alongside Arley, learning about equity, inclusion and intersectionality of disability through her thoughtful insight. We are absolutely shocked and devastated by the sudden loss of such a wonderful person, and while we have no further details at this time, we will be in touch with any information we can find about supporting her little girl, Dottie.
Arley will be so deeply missed by us all. We wish you all peace as you read this news, and navigate the grief that comes with losing someone so impactful in your lives.
If you are able to support Dottie a go fund me page has been set up for her future in remembrance Arley.
