1. The Sunshine Foundation who fulfilled the dream of a 16-year-old boy with paraplegia who just wanted to “go fast.”

Sixteen-year-old Austin lives with paraplegia and has always loved the feeling of whipping through the air, traveling at top speeds. He craves the adrenaline rush of the race, but has always used second-hand chairs, which don’t fit him properly. The Sunshine Foundation, a charitable organization that makes dreams come true for children with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses, fulfilled Austin’s dream and gave him a new and fitted racing chair. Because of the Sunshine Foundation, Austin now has four gold medals and set a new Canadian record in the 800 meter race.
