Lawn Bowling Champion Vivian Berkeley Inducted into Canadian Disability Hall of Fame

Ottawa (ON)

The Canadian Disability Hall of Fame recognizes extraordinary individuals who, through their outstanding work and achievements, have significantly enriched the quality of life for people with disabilities. They have also made a profound difference in their communities, our country and internationally.

On October 20th, the Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons announced the induction of blind lawn bowling champion Vivian Berkeley into the prestigious Canadian Disability Hall of Fame. Berkeley’s 21-year career has seen her win 60 medals in lawn bowling competitions that include both national and international competitions as well as the Paralympics and Commonwealth Games.

Vivian Berkeley retired from competition in 2015 as unquestionably the greatest Canadian blind lawn bowler of all-time (B1 category completely blind) and is recognized by the CFPDP as the greatest Canadian athlete in her category.
