Meet The Team
Founder of the Cederstrand Foundation, Chris is an above knee amputee, former Team Canada Sledge Hockey athlete, and motivational speaker. Losing his leg in a workplace accident, Chris was once told that golf and bowling would be the greatest of what Chris could accomplish as an amputee. Refusing to believe this, Chris has raised the bar and pushed the limits for adaptive athletes, often being the first in a field to accomplish a new goal. Chris brings to the foundation a determined and dedicated passion for giving back to others and helping everyone reach their goals.
