    Vote Madison Broad
    She is a national champion in her sport, finished top 20 at Olympic trials last spring. While all the candidates are worthy nominees, none are at the top of their sport like Madison.

    All are very deserving of this recognition, however I voted in support of my friend, and a true inspiration to all who know her – the oh-so fabulous PATRICIA WRIGHT – who, incidentally, just wrote her name in the record books by winning Canada’s first-ever GOLD medal at the WORLD Karate Federation championships in Linz, Austria, on Oct. 29.

    Madison Broad is working her way to the Olympics. Balancing school work , training with the National team in Scarborough and with the Chatham Pool Sharks. Working hard every day. Trains for 3 hours in the morning starting at 5am in Chatham and then going to school all day . Then returning to the pool at night to train for another hour before homework and dinner. Long days for this girl.

    Hardest working kid and well respected by her teammates and coaches. OUA West 1st Team All Star in woman’s soccer!

    My vote is for Patricia Wright! In 2016, she became a Canadian national karate champion in Surrey, B.C.; then went on to become World Champion in Linz, Austria. This is the first time in history that a Canadian has brought home a gold medal from the Senior World Karate Championships. This is an amazing accomplishment and should be celebrated in her home town! Way to go, Patricia!!

    Patricia Weight USA true champion and fierce competitor. Her hard work and dedication to this are is nothing short of amazing. Wat to go Patricia.

    Patricia is a dedicated hard working athlete who never shrinks from a challenge. She has worked hard to refine her martial art, and has won many awards, the most recent being WORLD CHAMPION! This is no small feat, moving from Ontario competions, to Canadian ones, travelling to several venues in Europe, culminating in this recent victory. Although she has a disability, she competed and won events against so-called able bodied competitors. Through all of this she remains a very humble and fine person, and gives many hours of her time to the C-K United Way. There is no better nominee.

    There are so many deserving women in CK, but I’ve placed my vote for Patricia. Patricia Wright is not only balancing her busy schedule of dedicated community service, she has also made CANADIAN history this year as our country’s first world Karate champion in Linz, Austria. She is also the current national champion, as well. Patricia is a talented para-athlete, and is an inspiration and credit to our community.
