Meridian Credit Union’s First Play to Podium Fund Recipient
Meet the first recipient of adaptive sport equipment from the newly-branded Meridian Play to Podium Fund: Julian Caverley.
Julian was presented with his new equipment on July 30th at the Closing Ceremonies of the Niagara-On-The-Lake leg of the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games Torch Run. Julian began playing wheelchair basketball at age 11 with the Brock Niagara Penguins. In the winter of 2021, he found his passion for playing on the ice. He joined the new Niagara Sledge Hockey League hosted by ParaSport® Ontario. To learn more about the Niagara Sledge Hockey League visit this website by copying the link www.parasportniagara.ca.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
