One of Canada’s most celebrated athletes and humanitarians, Clara Hughes is thrilled to be putting her story on the page. Clara is the only athlete in history to win multiple medals at both the summer and winter Olympics. Success, however, means more than earning her athletic achievements. It also means helping others. Clara is the National Spokesperson for Bell Canada’s Mental Health initiative and has made it a personal goal to help break down the stigma associated with mental illness. She also plays an important role in the Right to Play programs, an organization that uses sport for development. She is an Officer of the Order of Canada and holds honorary doctorates from various Canadian Universities. Clara also has a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame.
