The Canadian Paralympic Committee, in collaboration with the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Sport Institute Network, is pleased to announce that the PARALYMPIAN SEARCH will be visiting Vancouver on Sunday, Oct. 22 and Toronto on Sunday, Nov. 26.
PARALYMPIAN SEARCH is an exciting program designed to identify future potential Paralympic athletes. It is a one-day event offering people with a disability the chance to test their abilities and discover which Paralympic sports they are best suited for. The event also welcomes current or former athletes from all levels aiming to transfer into a new Paralympic sport, or discover another sport that can complement their main discipline.
The event is open to people with a physical disability or a visual impairment, aged 14 to 35. Registration is free and can be done at paralympic.ca/paralympian-
Along with discovering their aptitude in a variety of sport skills, participants will have the chance to meet Paralympic athletes, hear their stories and see their medals.
