About the campaign

For some, the desire to play basketball comes with the need of a sports wheelchair. Playing hockey… a para ice sled. Biking with friends… a handcycle. Sprinting around a track… a racing wheelchair. Boccia… a special ball ramp.

That’s exactly what our Play to Podium Fund does. With your support we get people with a disability the equipment they need to get in the game for fun, fitness and friendships.

Yaw Korsah won gold at the African Championships in 2011 and used his winnings to open an orphanage in Ghana for physically challenged children. Then he wheeled his handcycle across the country to raise awareness for people with disabilities. Now in Canada, Yaw needed a handcycle to pursue his dream of representing Canada at the Tokyo Paralympics. We presented him with a $7,500 handcycle.

“I was looking to get Sooni involved in a sport to boost his confidence and to socialize," said his mom Samia Mohammed. "Little did I know it would turn into such an important part of his life! Thank you so much ParaSport Ontario for the sports wheelchair.”
Meet Molly

Meet Molly

The Char-Lan Skating Club’s first sledge skater, Molly McRae, joined her skating mates in Skate Canada’s flagship learn-to-skate program, CanSkate. “Seeing the joy on Molly’s face is what it is all about,” says coach Pina. “It is letting kids like Molly know that, yes, they are equal. Thank-you ParaSport Ontario for the sledge to help us become the first club in our area to offer sledge skating.”
