Contest after contest, Mark McMorris ruffles more feathers than Maverick's un-authorized flyby in Top Gun.
The Saskatchewan native staked his claim with X Games Slopestyle silver and an Air and Style win in 2011, and he's been striking precious medals ever since. With double X Games Big Air and Slopestyle gold, Burton US Open and Dew Tour wins, and competition-first triple corks on lock, 2014 showed the world what McMorris is made of. After winning silver at the X Games despite a harsh rail crash, McMorris scored bronze at Sochi-ripping the slopestyle course with a cracked rib.
The McMorris Gala
My brother Craig and I are so grateful for the love and support we have received and continue to receive from our home community in Regina, Saskatchewan. In the spirit of giving and togetherness, each year over the holidays we extend our appreciation through our signature event: the McMorris Gala. With live music, dancing, and an exciting line-up of silent auction items, gala attendees are guaranteed to have an unforgettable, fun evening in support of a great cause.
The 4th annual McMorris Gala fundraiser will be held on Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015. All proceeds from this interactive, concert-based event are donated to Canadian Tire Jumpstart, a program designed to provide underprivileged children access to participate in sport. Since launching this event in 2012, the McMorris Gala has helped over 550 children pursue their passion for sport. Craig and I are committed to assisting as many kids explore their athletic potential by providing them with the same kinds of opportunities we had growing up.
