Polio Quebec - 25 years

Last night some of us were lucky enough to be invited to attend the 25th Anniversary celebration of Polio Quebec.  They were kind enough to honour us with a plaque for some of the volunteer work we contributed to the organization. We met so many wonderful and inspirational people - including Ramesh Ferris. Check out his incredible story of survival and his voyage across Canada promoting polio awareness. Thank you to Polio Quebec for hosting us at this wonderful event, and for all the work you have put into globally eradicating this disease.

Follow us!

Follow us on or journey to qualify for the Olympic Games in London in 2012. Our first shot is at the Pan-American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico in October 2011.
Stay tuned for updates, team info, results and photos.
