Achievement in sport at the highest levels is something that should be recognized and honoured as the ability to reach those heights is something that only a select few accomplish. When looking at the inductees that are currently in the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame you’ll be amazed as to who you’ll find.
The Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame “honours, for all time, those athletes, administrators, officials, media and individuals who have achieved the highest standard of excellence in sport”. The hope here is that if someone within our community is to achieve greatness in the field of sport than so can you. The ESHOF also holds many fundraising events throughout the year including their Annual Winter Carnival and their Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament. The proceeds go to the student scholarship program as well as helping Special Olympics scholarship recipients.
With Etobicoke being a small city within the GTA you would think that there would be only one or two recognizable names in the Hall of Fame but you would be wrong. Just glancing at the long list of inductees you’ll instantly notice names such as Ken Dryden, Brendan Shanahan, Marnie McBean, Doug Gilmour, George Chuvalo, Johnny Bower, Joey Votto, and Paul Henderson. Obviously we can’t list them all but you can view the list here. But nominations are not just about hall of famers as you can also nominate an Athlete of the Month from a local community who has showed both heart and skill.
Be sure to check out the Etobicoke Sports Hall of Fame to find out which great sports figures have made the list and the great work done by this organization to help youth in sport.
