The Paralympic Foundation of Canada is thrilled to launch its annual fall campaign: connecting Canadians.  The proceeds of this year’s campaign will go to ensure that programs, equipment and people are in place to propel more Canadians with a disability all the way from their communities to the Paralympic podium.

With the next three Paralympic Games taking place in Asia it will be even more important for our athletes to know that they have the support of Canadians from coast to coast to coast. 

Todd Nicholson, Chef de Mission of the Canadian Paralympic Team for the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games, is passionate about connecting Canadians across the country though parasport. From the volunteers who are the life blood of grassroot parasport to parents and grandparents who never miss a competition to the hometown fans who cheer our athletes every step of the way, we each have a part to play in the Paralympic story. 

Please donate today, and while doing so, show your support by writing a message for the Canadian Paralympic Team that will be competing in PyeongChang in March 2018. Your message will be displayed at Canada Paralympic House or the Athletes Village during the Games in PyeongChang.
