Virtual Golisano Health Leadership Awards

Special Olympics PEI is honoured to announce the selection of three individuals and organizations as the 2020 Golisano Health Leadership Award recipients. The Golisano Health Leadership Award was established in 2016, in partnership with Special Olympics and the Golisano Foundation, and is given to selected individuals or organizations that are dedicated to improving the health of people with intellectual disabilities and advancing the health work of Special Olympics.

These awards are being presented February 25 and 26, 2021 at the Confederation Centre for the Arts. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, attendance at these in person events is very limited. To this end, as we wish to share this celebratory event with all of our members and supporters, we will be hosting virtual versions of the events. 

The Golisano Health Leadership Awards are being presented virtual using the Facebook Live event links as follows:

In conjunction with the award presentations, Special Olympics PEI engaged with local artists to share the stories of what our organization has meant in the eyes of its athletes. It is fitting that through both sport and art people strive for their best, strive to engage with others, and strive to express themselves, and it makes perfect sense that, eventually, the two worlds should meet.

The artwork displayed outside of Memorial Hall from February 25-28, 2021 has brought artists and Special Olympics PEI athletes together in collaboration, finding commonalities and inspiration in each other.
