Some of Canada’s most celebrated Olympic and Paralympic athletes are in Calgary, Friday.
Gold medallists Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, Justin Kripps, and Brian McKeever will share their experiences at “Champion Chats 2018: Stories from the Podium.”
Spokesperson Steve Mesler, a U.S. Olympic gold medallist, told City News the event is sold out.
“It’s probably one of, if not the best Olympic celebrations or Paralympic celebrations in the country happening and we’re having it right here in Calgary, and we’re doing it to raise money so more Olympians and more Paralympians can reach kids across western Canada, and mentor them on goal setting and perseverance and community involvement, and Calgary’s business community has stepped up,” he said.
Hometown Hockey co-host Tara Sloan will host the fundraiser at Hotel Arts. It begins Friday at 11:00 a.m.
