MICHELLE TONER

(1 Vote)

“The potential for growth, optimism and possibility are the best things about Fort McMurray.”

If personality scored points in the Game Of Life, Michelle would be off the charts. She’s been here since 2006 and her life and loves have pretty much revolved around sport since then. Michelle is the General Manager of the 2018 Wood Buffalo Alberta Winter Games and it would be difficult to find someone more knowledgeable about local sport.

She came to work at the Syncrude Sports and Wellness Centre at Keyano College before it was even built. Michelle has her Master’s Degree in Sports Management, which is appropriate as she has either been on the management team or been a volunteer at practically every sports event in YMM in the last few years, including the 2016 CCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship. She also has a twofer; before running the Winter Games she was also a venue lead at the 2015 Western Canada Summer Games.

Michelle has played a lot of the sports as well and now is enjoying watching her kids demonstrate the same love for sport that she and her husband, Brendan, have had all their life. Michelle loves it best when taking part has more meaning than the result, which is why the CIBC Run for the Cure event is also so important to her. The biggest love of her life after her family is still the Keyano Huskies and after so many years of helping to develop the teams into such a great source of pride in the community, the odds are pretty good that if you want to find Michelle on the weekend, all you need to do is go to the Huskies home games.
