Donations have impact for athletes
A recent $40,000 donation from Intelliware Development is a shining example of how timely and significant financial support to the Paralympic Foundation of Canada can impact the performances of Canadian para-athletes.
“This donation arrives in the crucial months leading up to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, which means it is not only helping established athletes but the stars of tomorrow as well,” said Jim Westlake, Chair of the Paralympic Foundation of Canada. “The benefits will be felt for years to come.”
From this donation, 50% will support high performance programming for the national para-cycling and wheelchair basketball teams specifically, while the remainder will be directed to the Circle of Champions funding initiative. The Circle of Champions provides funding to ensure that Canadian Paralympic athletes have access to the best coaching, training environments, equipment and sport science.
“It means so much to us to be able to help Paralympic athletes and Paralympic hopefuls achieve their highest goals,” said Greg McKenzie, Senior Vice-President of Intelliware Development, a custom software development and services firm based in Toronto. “More and more Canadians are becoming aware of Paralympic sport and we want them to see these athletes at their best and delivering peak performances.”
