Speakers at the 2016 Grey Cup Breakfast

Athletes in Action is pleased to invite you to the 39th Annual Grey Cup Breakfast

This fun-filled, entertaining morning offers more than just a hearty meal, it provides the opportunity to win valuable CFL autographed merchandise, be entertained by local performers, and hear from players, coaches, and families from across the CFL.

Over the years, the breakfast has heard from fan favourites Henry Burris, Henoc Muamba, Barrin Simpson, Anthony Calvillo, Kerry Joseph, Chuck Ealey, John Hufnagel, Wally Buono, Michael “Pinball” Clemons, and other CFL stars. Each in their own way, these men have inspired and challenged people to live a life of courage and meaning, and have contributed to the primary objective of the Grey Cup Breakfast: to provide a message of hope, courage, and faith.

You will be given a rare glimpse into the lives of the men behind the uniforms as they share how their faith has impacted both their professional and personal lives. The combination of professional, personal, and spiritual elements ensures the sell-out of this event each year.

Make plans now so you don’t miss the 2017 Grey Cup Breakfast!

“Wally Buono defines success in the Canadian Football League. He is the winningest head coach in league history. He has won five Grey Cups as a coach, two more as a player. But the current head coach, general manager and vice-president of football operations for the B.C. Lions is also a devout Christian who says true success is God changing your heart.”
