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!
