Thanks to all those who participated in the 2015 Global Awareness Week Badminton Fundraiser. Proceeds from the tournament went to Sport-in-a-Box, a United Nations Association in Canada programme using sport to foster global engagement and social-cultural diversity. The winners of this year’s tournament were Prabhav Sharma, Marie Parker, and Nataliya Oliferchuk.
Sport-in-a-Box inspires young Canadians to use the power of sport to engage with their communities in global issues that affect us all. A legacy of the 2005 UN International Year of Sport and Physical Education (IYSPE), this innovative, creative, and fun project uses sport to promote public awareness of relevant issues and emphasizes the importance of a life-long engagement in sport, physical activity and the appreciation of social-cultural diversity.
