Joey McColm, NASCAR Canada Driver/Environmental Advocate
Recognized as one of Canada’s most personable and accessible drivers in NASCAR Canada, professional racecar driver Joey McColm is also a civil and environmental engineer. He graduated from Toronto’s Ryerson University in 2010 and is currently working on an MBA degree. Joey is also an advocate for, and leading example of, individual responsibility when it comes to the environment in professional racing and his personal life. Joey began his career at age 15 as a first-generation driver and quickly moved up the ranks of competitive racing in Canada. In 2010, he finished his first full NASCAR Canada season with an impressive national rank of 11th. Following a race in Peterborough last year, Joey started the process of reducing his impact and that of his team by committing to simple environmental actions. His team has since become the most environmentally responsible team in NASCAR Canada.
Lisa Grogan-Green, Co-chair of the Valley Park Go Green Cricket Field project
Lisa Grogan-Green is the co-chair of the Valley Park Go Green Cricket Field project that will serve the Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park priority neighbourhoods. Begun as a small scale school yard revitalization project in early 2011, it vaulted into the big leagues when a multi-sport natural turf cricket field was chosen as the centrepiece. Now Canada's fastest-growing sport, cricket is also the passion of this mostly South Asian newcomer community. The field is supported by a sophisticated rooftop rainwater harvesting system and surrounded by a community-planted bioswale, wetland, urban forest and butterfly meadow in Phase One. Phase One starts this August 2011. The goal is to reconnect these densely populated multi-residential neighbourhoods with the richness of the adjacent Don River valley while teaching about and practicing water conservation.
