Accomplish Today Fund for Sport
When I was young I wanted to have fun in sport. I did not want to be the best or be a professional, I just wanted to participate. I was not able to understand that being in a wheelchair meant I was different. I tried all kinds of sports: soccer, basketball, track and field and downhill skiing. In every sport I played I hit a plateau because someone else decided it was too complicated to include me. I eventually found inclusion in sport through sledge hockey. I made a career and name for myself representing Canada at the highest level possible. I tried many inclusive sports, often at great expense before I found sledge hockey.
This is the inspiration behind Accomplish Today Fund for Sport. Accomplish Today provides funds for youth with disabilities to get involved in sport and gain confidence through a healthy and active lifestyle. Through my journey to success, I hope to make the lives of others rewarding.
