EFO becomes the official breakfast protein of Tyler McGregor
Mississauga, November 1st, 2021 – Egg Farmers of Ontario (EFO) announced today a three-year partnership with Tyler McGregor, Captain of Hockey Canada’s National Sledge Hockey Team, positioning eggs as the Official Breakfast Protein of Tyler McGregor.
Tyler is not only known as a world-class athlete, but is also considered a community leader and role model for young athletes. At the age of 15, following a leg injury obtained while playing AAA hockey, Tyler received the difficult news that he had Spindle Cell Sarcoma, a similar type of cancer as Canadian hero Terry Fox. To save his life, Tyler had to have his leg amputated.
Despite this obstacle, Tyler changed direction and found a new way to compete on the ice through Sledge Hockey. His passion for the game directed his focus and with a lot of hard work and determination, he has become an incredible athlete and inspiration to many.
“Egg Farmers of Ontario considers it a privilege to support Tyler McGregor,” said Scott Helps, EFO Chair. “Not only is he a remarkable athlete, but he is also someone who represents the same values as our farmers – he understands that hard work, dedication and a passion for what you do will lead to great things.”
Tyler says he used the legacy of Terry Fox to get him through the challenge of learning to adapt to his new life as a single-leg amputee and to learn to aspire to new goals and dreams. “It is a privilege to have EFO as my official breakfast protein. As an Ontario boy, born and raised, I know first-hand the exceptional level of quality and care that goes into each Ontario farmed egg. Today, Ontario grown eggs are my go-to breakfast protein to prepare, train and perform my best as a high-performance athlete because I know I am starting each day with the best in quality.”
EFO is excited to partner with Tyler on his journey as he aspires to fulfilling his goals.
