Debbie Kabush’s involvement with boccia began in 1989 when her daughter (and fellow CCPSA Hall of Fame Inductee) Alison Kabush was invited to try boccia at the Variety Child Development Center in Vancouver. Her involvement grew from there to include becoming a National and International referee and Board member of SportAbility BC. Later, Kabush moved onto the CCPSA board in several roles including providing critical work in provincial development. Not one to sit back, she also found time to organize fundraising events and develop new boccia coaching programs. Ironically, Kabush was also the driving force behind creating the CCPSA Hall of Fame in 2005.
When asked about her experience with CCPSA Debbie said “This has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had, due to the many people and athletes I’ve met within the boccia community.”
