Excited to Host Parasport Games

We’re so excited to be hosting the Durham Region 2019 Ontario Parasport Games, from February 8 – 10. About 350 athletes will be coming from across our province to compete in 11 sports. And our local economy will benefit from about $500,000 in spending.

We chose to bid on the Ontario Parasport Games because we’re proud of the culture of sport, inclusion, and accessibility here in Durham Region. And we’re proud of facilities like WindReach Farm, Grandview

Children’s Centre, and the Abilities Centre, which have been instrumental in paving the way toward making Durham Region an inclusive and accessible community, ideally suited to welcome parasport athletes.

As we ready to host these amazing athletes, we’re inspired daily by their spirit and their capabilities. That’s why we’ve adopted the hashtag “paramazing” for our Games.

Athletes across our province are working hard to be at their very best when they come here to compete next year. We’re working hard also because we want to be at our very best too.

We will need your help, so watch for future opportunities to join our team.
