On November 8th, the TO2015 Pan Am Organizing Committee hosted a conference entitled: Game Changers Sport Inclusion Conference: Athletes play at their best when they can be themselves. It was a wonderful day with informative Breakout Sessions that featured folks from Pride House Toronto and the Pan Am Path as well as athletes Perdita Felicien and Josh Cassidy. Marnie McBean was the closing keynote speaker.
I attended and had a wonderful time. The Marketplace featured local groups such as Toronto Sports Council and Coaches Association of Ontario, which were handing out information about sport services and initiatives. I also met Melissa Tan, a contributing writer with Red Nation, who has been covering the Canadian Women’s National Soccer Team over the last four years.
Tan was covering the conference for Red Nation and she approached me about LUYC. In her piece about the conference, she gives LUYC a shout-out — nice! You can read the full article here: Game Changers 2014 Sport Inclusion Conference recap.
Happy Friday everyone!
