Our Co-Founders and Members

Rick Henry:

President / Co-Founder & wrestling coach

The organization’s president, Rick Fitzgerald Henry was born in Jamaica and immigrated to Canada with his grandmother at an early age where he attended elementary school, high school, and The University of Guelph as a sociology major. Rick was diagnosed as legally blind in his early teens but still persevered his way through the university as a student athlete and team captain of the wrestling team. With dedication, focus, and drive, Rick represented Canada at the 1999 Pan American games in Greco Roman Wrestling and participated in the Olympic trials. Throughout Rick's wrestling career, team diversity was always constant and because of this Rick, his teammates, and coaches, learned how to cooperate and accept multiculturalism.
