This dynamic duo previously served as Chef de Mission and Assistant Chef, respectively, for the Special Olympics Team Canada 2022.

We are eager to bring the same passion, dedication and positive energy to Torino in 2025,” shared Charity Sheehan, Chef de Mission. “Our goal is to create an empowering and inclusive environment for our team – where we foster a collective spirit, shape a culture of resilience and champion the unwavering commitment of our athletes as they showcase their abilities on the world stage.”

Juli Prokopchuk Brattan, appointed as Assistant Chef de Mission, added, “The journey with Special Olympics Team Canada has been incredibly rewarding, despite the challenges. We have learned, grown and formed a strong partnership as Chef and Assistant Chef. As we look ahead to Torino 2025, we are excited to continue this journey and provide our athletes with the support they need to shine.”

Special Olympics Canada is confident that Sheehan and Prokopchuk Brattan will continue to be exemplary leaders, representing the values of inclusivity, determination and sportsmanship that define our global Special Olympics movement.
