IT is with great humility and humbleness I would like to inform you that recently I have been appointed as a Chair of Special Olympic Toronto – Community Council.

Special Olympics motto will definitely inspire you to act by wanting to know more about this noble cause,

“Let me Win, But if I cannot Win, Let me be Brave in the Attempt.”

I presented a video during my first meeting as a chair.  It has been posted on YouTube by Special Olympics Ontario. Please take a moment to click on the link below (or cut and paste) and if you need more information feel free to contact me.  Please pass on this email and link to your family and friends.

The fundamental difference which sets Special Olympics competitions apart is that athletes of all ability levels are encouraged to participate and every athlete is recognized for his or her performance. Competitions are structured so that athletes compete with other athletes of similar ability in equitable divisions.

Similar to other sports organizations, Special Olympics competitions are structured to provide opportunities for increasingly challenging competitions. This means that recreational and competitive athletes will have the opportunity to compete at a community level with the opportunity to advance to Regional, Provincial, National or even World competitions based on selection or qualifying criteria.

When people see the seriousness and sense of purpose evident in each Special Olympics athletic event, a window of understanding opens. In hundreds of competitions a year around the world, people everywhere get the chance to have their eyes opened and their perspectives widened.

Special Olympics provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with special needs.  Those activities give them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skill and friendship.

Waris Malik is the founder of the Hot Soup Day at the Islamic Foundation and Islamic Soccer League volunteer and Muslim Annual Awards ceremony organiser and so many other things he has done in Toronto to make this country as beautiful and Muslim-friendly as possible.
