The Group's Purpose

There are more than four million people in Canada with a disability, but only a very small percentage is involved in physical activity. The cost of inactivity is very high – from escalating medical costs to increased social isolation.

How to Help

Please join my group and donate online so that together we can create opportunity for Canadian athletes with a disability.

About the Organizers

The Canadian Paralympic Committee is a well-established not-for profit sports organization with a reputation for assisting athletes with a disability excel at the highest level of international competition through collaboration with our sport, government and corporate partners.

Following on the success at the Sochi 2014 Winter Paralympics - where Canada finished third in the gold medal standings - we turn our sights to the Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games and the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
