Make No Small Plans
Author: Jim Jordan
Publisher: Chill Media Inc.
Price: $29.99 (Hardcover)

Forty years ago, Toronto athlete and sportscaster Harry (Red) Foster brought the very first Special Olympics to Canada. Make No Small Plans commemorates his vision, a legacy that has grown into a cross-country opportunity for the intellectually disabled to hone physical skills and that has spawned more than 150 international chapters. Wayne Gretzky opens the book, which contains hundreds of photographs, original documents and detailed historical accounts. Tracing the non-profit’s Canadian origins, it delves into the birth of provincial chapters and transition points that leveraged it to national revere.
