On Thursday, June 14, 2018, the Class of 2018 inductees will come together at Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in Calgary for a gala fundraiser. The Class of 2018 includes: Jeff Adams (Para-Athletics), Damon Allen (Football), Chandra Crawford (Cross Country Skiing), the late Mary Baker (Baseball), Alexandre Despatie (Diving), Dave Keon (Ice Hockey), Dr. Sandra Kirby (Builder, Sport Administration), and Wilton Littlechild (Builder, Indigenous Peoples’ Sports).
This is Calgary’s only opportunity to meet the Class of 2018, who will be officially inducted during Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame #INSPIRECANADA Induction Celebrations in Toronto on Thursday, October 18, 2018. Induction into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame is the country’s highest sporting honour. The media conference will be emceed by Honoured Member, Stephanie Dixon, one of Canada’s renowned Paralympic Swimmers. This year’s #INSPIRECANADA Gala continues to support Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame’s Girls in Sport initiative to encourage girls to get involved or stay involved in sport. 70% of girls quit sport by the age of 13. Proceeds from the Gala will be used to help create more awareness of this national issue by allowing us to engage girls to tell their stories of why sport is so important.
