"When people think of people with disabilities, they always think in terms of limitations. They never think about the possibilities." - Toronto Blind Tennis player
"I was told that I didn't fit the 'demographic'. That scarred me after he said that. It is a reminder, that based on me being BLACK, I don't make the cut. This is the reason I coach now, so this doesn't happen to anyone of color." - founding member of Change Through Sport
SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITIES
Change Through Sport
For over 10 years, we have addressed racial, socio-economical, and accessibility barriers to participation in sports with the Rexdale, and visually impaired and blind communities in Toronto. Despite the interruption of COVID-19, the need remains and thus our work continues. We remain steadfast in our commitment to the work ahead of us and invite you to join us in creating a more just and equitable world!
