This May, U of T Law graduate Jim Ware (LLB 1968) will be inducted as a builder to the University of Toronto Sports Hall of Fame.

As founding president of the ‘Friends of Football’, Ware played a pivotal role as leader of the alumni group that helped save the Varsity Blues football program in the early 1990's.

Additional inductees include University of Toronto Varsity Blues women's basketball head coach Michèle Bélanger, and tennis captains Isable Jorasz (HBSc 0T8 NEW, BEd 1T2), Rory Hunter (BSc 8T2 TRIN, DDS 8T6), and Don Steele (BA 7T1 VIC).

The Sports Hall of Fame honours U of T's greatest athletes and builders. It was established by the T-Holders' Association in 1987 as part of an ongoing effort to preserve and display the records relating to the outstanding historical tradition of athletic, academic and community leadership fostered by the University of Toronto.

The newest members are set to be celebrated on May 30, 2024. The event will be held at Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport on the University of Toronto's downtown campus. Tickets are available here. The reception will start at 6:00 p.m., with the ceremony to follow at 7:00 p.m., inside the Kimel Family Field House.
