In the Spring of 2015, I was notified by the organizers of the 2015 Toronto Parapan Am Games in Oshawa that I was selected to be a participate in the Torch Relay at Lakeview Park. All the torch bearers met at the Jubilee. There I was told I was gonna be the last leg of the torch relay and light the cauldron. After this news, I told my Mom & Dad, and than I introduced myself to each torch bearer and shook their hands. This was a oince in a life-time event.
After the torch relay, Julie MacIsaac, (Director, Recreation and Culture Services), approached me asked if I wanted two tickets to the opening ceremony of the 2015 Toronto Parapan Am Games at York University Stadium. I said “Yes.” Long story short, my friend George took me. He helped to upgrade our tickets, hob-knob it with dignitaries, and took photos. This “happening” and holy moment ended a month later when we met the Governor General of Canada in Toronto.
