    Leonka Kaluha: Special Olympics Athlete

    Leonka Kaluha: Special Olympics Athlete

    Throughout her life Leonka Kaluha has battled adversity in the form of bullying and judgment - simply for being herself. Despite these hardships, she continues to challenge herself to be the best she can be and getting involved with Special Olympics was her first step.

    After turning 18, Leonka registered for 5-pin bowling and swimming with Special Olympics Alberta – Calgary because she wanted to make new friends and stay active. She hasn’t looked back since.

    For Leonka, gaining confidence and loving herself have been her biggest challenges, but she has worked hard to overcome them. Now, she has a challenge for the world: to make inclusion second nature and for people to respect athletes, including herself, for their abilities, not disability.

    We acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. This includes the Métis Settlements and the Six Regions of the Métis Nation of Alberta within the historical Northwest Metis Homeland. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
