KIwanis Luncheon - Christo Bilukidi, NFL defensive lineman

Christo Bilukidi met a man on a plane… and his life changed.

Growing up in community housing with a strong single mom who encouraged her children to do their best he seized the opportunity for a good education and moved to the U.S. on a football scholarship. He was 22 and made it to the big league.

One day he realized he didn’t want to play football anymore and came back to his hometown Ottawa and is now an ambassador for the Ottawa Community Housing Foundation and encourages children to grab the opportunities that life offers them. He also started his own business making SUITS FOR ALL. 

President’s Rose
