Supporting persons
with disabilities through sport

Here at the Shelley Gautier Para-Sport Foundation we want to empower
everyone with disabilities. It is about staying active and healthy

Participation in sport activities has proven health benefits, including feelings of freedom, independence and wellness for persons with disabilities as well as life-enhancing exercise that promotes physical fitness and active living.

A staggering 20% of our citizens have some form of disability - That's 1/5th of the general population that could potentially benefit from our initiatives!

Challenges and barriers

There are significant challenges and barriers for persons with disabilities to enter and participate in both team and individual sporting activities. These barriers are both financial, physical and include lack of suitable access to transportation, equipment, facilities, coaches and support people.

Our mandate is to break down the barriers that prevent persons with disabilities from fully participating in sporting activities by developing the facilities, equipment, programs, and support people. We aim to create awareness and address the unique challenges and needs of each participant.
