Participants can showcase their skills, compete in a friendly atmosphere, and forge lasting connections with fellow athletes from diverse backgrounds.
“I firmly believe that events like the All Community Games is important for our community. Participating in these games allows individuals of all ages to learn from each other and build friendships that can bring a positive vibe to our community,” said Regional Councillor Alan Ho, the honorary advisor of the All Community Games.
Participants will have the chance to challenge themselves in various sports competitions, including below: badminton and soccer at Bill Crothers Secondary School (June 10), Fencing at Toronto Fencing Club (June 11), 10-pin bowling at Classic Bowl (June 17), volleyball at Thornlea Secondary School (June 22), and swimming at Toronto Pan Am Centre (July 23).
Established in 2005, All Community Games’ (formerly Asian Community Games) mission is to unite all communities through several days of friendly athletic competition. The goal is to facilitate a better understanding through interaction with each other. Since its inception, the organizers have been deeply encouraged by the responses and input of many communities. The Asian Community Games was opened to all Canadians of different age groups and ethnic communities. In 2017, to reflect the participation of all ethnic communities, the Asian Community Games was officially renamed to All Community Games.
