Para Pro-Am Golf Tournament

ParaSport® Ontario sets the standard for inclusion for everyBODY to participate and play in the sport or activity of their choice.

This year's golf tournament was bigger than ever, with over 300 guests welcomed, including 25+ paragolfers and 20 PGA pros. We had over 125+ youth golfers trying adaptive sports and on the driving range learning to play adaptive golf and other parasports for the first time.

Play to Podium Fund

The launch of the Play to Podium Fund saw over $30,000 worth of adaptive sport equipment being given to deserving individuals and clubs.

Thank you to Sunrise Medical, Durham Medical, Unique Inventions Inc., Ossur Canada and Prosthetic Energy Inc. for supporting us this year and sponsoring this Play to Podium Fund launch.

Youth guests competed in the PARAmazing Challenge from Holland Bloorviews Kids Rehabilitation Centre, Cruisers Sport for the Physically Disabled, Variety Ontario, Unionville Milliken Soccer Club High-5 All Abilities Team, the City of Toronto summer camps program and the Brock Niagara Penguins.

There was a lot of excitement around roller sledge hockey, boccia, wheelchair relay, sitting volleyball and, of course, adaptive golf.

Thank you to the teachers, facilitators, volunteers and caregivers who attended as well who ensured everyone had a smile on their face the entire day.

Thank you to our incredible sponsors who helped make this event possible, it could not have been done without your generous support.
