CBC Toronto is a proud media sponsor of the 29th Annual Harry Jerome Awards. The awards will be presented on April 30, 2011 in Toronto by the Black Business and Professional Association.
Dwight Drummond, co-host of CBC News Toronto, and Garvia Bailey, host of Big City Small World on CBC Radio One 99.1 FM will be the MCs for this gala event.
The awards are in honor of the late Harry Jerome, an outstanding sprinter who set several track-and-field records during the 1960's and represented Canada in the Olympics, Pan-American Games and Commonwealth Games. The premier Canadian track athlete of his time, Jerome's athletic successes were partnered with scholastic excellence and social consciousness. Despite a relatively brief life, Jerome left all Canadians a proud legacy and a blueprint for success.
