On Friday, November 4th, the 23rd induction to the Canadian Disability Hall of Fame took place. The three inductees were Marni Abbott-Peter in the Athlete category, Tim Frick in the builder category and Terry Kelly in the achiever category. The luncheon was held at the Fairmont hotel in all its luxury and glory.

It started with a speech by Joanne Smith, already a member of the hall of fame, thanking all who could make it. After Major Beverly Ivany sang the national anthem.

After lunch was served, Joanne returned to the stage and introduced all the Hall of Fame members who were present at the time. Minister Tracy MacCharles was then invited to the stage to be honored for her work.

When the inductees were called to the stage, the organizers had to repeatedly wait for the public to stop the loud and ongoing applauses. Marni was the first one on stage and delivered a beautiful speech on her path. Tim Frick also had beautiful words on his work and experiences as a wheelchair basketball coach. Terry Kelly was not able to attend the event but his wife Ann Nugent awarded us all with a thrilling speech on Terry’s life.

After the induction ceremony Michael Burns, organizer and promoter for the invictus games went on stage with a marvelous presentation on how much the games are important when it comes to inclusiveness and how the great majority of people are now aware not only of what are the games but also what they represent.
