The inaugural event is just six weeks away, set to take place on Thursday, May 24, from 7:30-9 a.m.The event will feature an address from keynote speaker Catriona Le May Doan, a Canadian Olympic icon. A two-time gold medalist in speedskating, winning the 500-metre competition in the 1998 and 2002 Winter Games, she is the only Canadian athlete to defend an Olympic gold medal in any discipline, and still holds the Olympic record in the 500 metres.
