Olympic gold medalists – and longtime Special Olympics champions – Scott Moir, Tessa Virtue and Patrick Chan are choosing to include individuals with an intellectual disability in their upcoming cross-country tour, Rock the Rink.
The all-star cast of Moir, Virtue, Chan, two-time Olympic silver medalist Elvis Stojko, Canadian figure skater Kaetlyn Osmond, American figure skater Jeremy Abbott and Italian figure skater Carolina Kostner, will be joined by a local Special Olympics Canada athlete, who will perform a solo at each Canadian stop in the 31-city tour this fall.
Jake Bullen, a member of the Board of Directors of Special Olympics Canada, and Marco Ciarlariello are proud to have assisted Special Olympics Canada, on a pro bono basis, with this partnership. Jake and Marco are both members of the Sports Law team at Cassels Brock.
