In 1983, Calgary hosted its largest amateur sport competition, the Western Canada Summer Games, for which Talisman Centre was designed and built. At the conclusion of the successful event, a Legacy Fund of $250,000 was established to support amateur athletes and amateur sport. Inspired by this commitment to amateur sport, in 2012, a second Legacy Fund was established. The John Currie Amateur Sport Legacy Fund has been initiated to honour John Currie, President of the 1983 Western Canada Summer Games, and to provide bursaries for amateur athletes with financial need training in Calgary.
