Cindy Hughes

CATA 2017 Hall of Fame

What does receiving this award means to you:

I am so honoured and humbled to be inducted into the CATA Hall of Fame. To be included in this prestigious Hall with my fellow nominees and previous inductees is something I never dreamt of. I have had the most extraordinary career that I am very grateful for and proud of.

Your contribution to athletic therapy:

Working on CATA, OUA and CIS committees gave me an opportunity to contribute, have a voice and learn from my colleagues.

Highlights such as events you did that were important to you:

I had the great fortune to travel around the world with National Teams and be selected to numerous major games and world championships. This enabled me to not only work with great athletes but wonderful colleagues from across the country that have become lifelong friends.

I would like to thank Andrea Prieur, Mike Boni, Kelly Parr and Bruce Marshall for nominating me. I am so touched that they would take the time and effort to think of me of me for this award. I would like to thank my teachers at Sheridan College, Barry Bartlett, Anne Hartley, Judy Russell, Evert van Beek and Kevin Perry.
