Drew Laskoski

2010 Newmarket

‘Helping you, help yourself’ is the motto for both Drew Laskoski and Upper Canada Sports Medicine, his multidisciplinary rehab clinic that has served York Region since 1990. It is also how Drew gives back to the community. Drew learned about the responsibility inherent in leadership from his father, former president of the York Region Police Association. He has carried this legacy into his volunteer work, from serving as a Head Student Therapist / Waterloo Warrior Golden Mascot in the varsity basketball team, to his current tenure as 4-year President of the Ontario Athletic Therapy Association. His most cherished volunteer memory was at the 1999 Pan Am Games as part of the host medical team. For Drew, who gives from the heart, ‘I have learned that the more you give, sometime – some way, the wheel goes full circle and you receive back.’
