John Oakes

"I have been truly inspired by the enthusiasm and joy of life of the individuals I have met through ParaSport Ontario. I believe that their participation in a sport or a recreational activity of any kind has been a significant catalyst. Their pride, sense of self-fulfillment and discipline, and ability to become fit in the process has spilled over into every part of their lives."
