Did you get a chance to watch any of the ParaPan Am sporting events? It was an inspiring and exciting experience! Not to mention, Canada rocked the games finishing second with 168 medals, 50 gold, 63 silver and 55 bronze. Canada truly made us proud to be Canadian and I’m sure the spirit of the athletes inspired many others.
Athletics Canada recognizes that we have talented athletes here in Canada and they are always looking for more! A few weeks back, we had Athletics Canada and ParaPan Am athlete Wes Vick attend our client appreciation day. Many of our clients had the experience to get into a racing chair and practice pushing. This coming Tuesday, August 18th, from 1-3 you too can have a chance to try wheelchair racing. Athletics Canada will be bringing various chairs to Centennial Park Stadium in Etobicoke for anyone and everyone to try. Young and old, fit and the not so fit, please join us at the track. There will be help to get you in and out of the chairs and there will be various styles of chairs for different levels of injury.
Please let us know if you will be joining us for the afternoon so we can be prepared with chairs. You can contact Athletics Canada Para-Athletic Recruiter Adam Janssen at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 416-951-1981. You can also contact myself at email@example.com.
We hope to see you all Tuesday!
