Rotary Club of Whitby ParaSport Festival

Over 115 athletes participated in the Rotary Club of Whitby ParaSport® Festival this weekend and were introduced to sitting volleyball from talented Athlete Ambassadors like Paralympian Jolan Wong. More than $8,000.00 worth of adaptive sport equipment will be donated to individuals and community groups because of this event and the phenomenal support of the Rotary Club of Whitby, Ontario Volleyball Association, Ontario Power Generation, Stuttering John’s Smokehouse and Flash Automotive Repair Inc.

We are truly inspired by the community support and passion in Durham Region, over 14 teachers from the Durham District School Board and teachers from the Durham Catholic District School Board participated and received certification as Level 2 Inclusion Coaches by ParaSport® Ontario along 18 Community Coaches.

Thank you to those from the Rotary Club of Whitby who came out to participate and our guests from Grandview Children’s Centre.

Thank you to CKDO radio for sharing the news about this event and supporting adaptive sports in Durham Region.

Our sincere appreciation to those who attended and support given by the Durham Adaptive Sport Collective, our volunteers and incredible Board members who proved there is a sport for everyBODY this weekend.
