New name proposed for White Rock’s Centre for Active Living

Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation wants to recognize the generosity of two longtime supporters of community health.

White Rock’s Centre for Active Living should be renamed in recognition of two longtime supporters of Peace Arch Hospital and local community health.

According to a Nov. 18 report to council, city staff are supporting a request from Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation officials to invoke naming rights they were granted as a condition of being a partner and primary funding in the centre’s creation in 2010.

The request follows a “generous donation” from the estate of Horst and Emmy Werner, described as “longtime and generous supporters of the hospital and the health and wellness of the community.”

The foundation has designated $1 million from the gift for this purpose, and the renaming is to recognize the contribution, the report states.

If approved, costs associated with changing signage at the centre – located in Centennial Park – are to be borne by the foundation, and the name will become the Horst & Emmy Werner Centre for Active Living.
