In the news: Clara Hughes: ‘You show people the joy, and you share the struggle’

The Hamilton Spectator has this profile on Olympian Clara Hughes who is speaking at Mohawk College's McIntyre Performing Arts Centre this Friday. “I’ve won a lot of races, a lot of Olympic medals, but every medal stands for something," Clara says. " Something you overcome, or battle through. So you show people the joy … and you share the struggle.”

A limited number of $10 tickets are still available for the community event supported by McKeil Marine Ltd. and the Hamilton Spectator. Seating is general admission with doors opening at 9:30 a.m. Clara is donating her speaker's fee to Take a Hike, a Vancouver organization that reaches children at risk through outdoor programs.
