Saskatchewan has the second highest rate in Canada of people who live with a disability at 14.5%. Sport can play an important role in the lives of people with a disability by being part of a healthy lifestyle and providing access to a social network and peer support while developing self-discipline and positive self esteem. Sask Sport Inc. is investing in these two programs because we believe all people, regardless of ability, should be given the chance to participate in sport activities.

The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame is pleased to announce that Watt’s Electric Co. Ltd. is the first sponsor of our Hometown Heroes program which launched September 1 on Rawlco Radio’s Z99.
There are presently 498 inductees, or hometown heroes, from 53 sports who have been installed in the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. These individuals and teams represent more than 130 communities throughout the province and each one has an incredible and interesting story to tell. It is these stories that form the basis for our Hometown Heroes project which features one-minute radio vignettes.
Hometown Heroes will provide the listening audience with engaging stories about many of our honoured members which is designed to heighten awareness of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and our inductees, drive traffic to our website, and ultimately increase visitation to our physical site.
The Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame is thrilled to have the support of Watt’s Electric as we share Saskatchewan’s sporting Hometown Heroes.
We continue to add content from the 2014 Induction Dinner to our website. The latest addition is a PDF version of the souvenir program featuring the pencil portraits produced for each of our athlete & builder inductees. Our portrait artist is Colleen Kramer Dahlstrom and the artwork is sponsored by Molson Coors Canada.
We would also like to acknowledge and thank our many other sponsors who helped to make the Induction a huge success.
