Generous Canadians who make an annual donation of at least $500 per year become members of the Paralympic Foundation of Canada’s Circle of Champions. Members of the Circle of Champions ensure that together, we can make a profound and lasting impact on the para sport system in Canada, so that sport is accessible and available to all.
“When I look at the disability world more broadly, it’s not about high-performance sport, it’s about accessibility and inclusiveness. I think that the world has gotten a lot better than it was, but it still has a long way to go. From what I’ve seen through sport though, in many cases the most accessible cities around the world are ones where they’ve held the Paralympic Games. A big part of what the Paralympics has done for people with a disability goes well beyond the athletes and the Paralympics themselves.” Jim Westlake
PFC is grateful for the $1 million donation from Jim and Deb Westlake – the largest private donation in foundation history.
