Honouring our World Champions
#4It would be a lovely way to honour our very own gold medal champions!
#12They have great work ethics and totally deserve this honour
#13It is important to recognize all athletes that represent our country and not just the ones that are paid well for what they do. This would be a great step forward to show we support our special Olympics athletes and so they are just as important as our other athletes. Helps with inclusion for all.
#14Jack and Katie are an inspiration to us all. Go after your dreams no matter what. I applaud their courage and perseverance!
#15We fully support Special Olympics and think that it would be great to name the rink after these amazing WORLD CHAMPIONS!! They truly deserve it!!
#16I know Katie and Jack because my daughter is in the Special Olympics skating club with them. All the other kids look up to these two as great role-models of what can be achieved with hard work and determination.

#23Jack and Katie deserve the recognition!
#25Their hard work and amazing achievement should be recognized in some manner. To name a rink where they honed their skills is a good starting point. Continued success.
