Toronto Catholic District School Board

Geoge Chuvalo Visits

Our school was selected to host a presentation by Mr. George Chuvalo, former Canadian Heavyweight Boxing Champion.  Mr. Chuvalo is now a dynamic motivational speaker, who has been making presentations to students, parents and other groups since losing four members of his immediate family to substance abuse.
His presentation, called “Fight Against Drugs”, addresses how drugs have impacted his life. He de-glamorizes drug use by giving examples of what he has witnessed first hand. He also stresses the fact that in the criminal system, the majority of crimes are committed as a result of substance abuse. In most cases, addicts turn into criminal, not criminals into addicts.
