Lori-Ann Muenzer and the "Road to Champions"
August 11, 2005 (Ottawa) - The Canadian Cycling Association has teamed up with title sponsor EPCOR to host six gala dinners this fall across Canada which will highlight Canadaâ€šs most celebrated medal-winning elite athletes. Olympic gold medalist Lori-Ann Muenzer will be one of the key headline speakers who will talk about her road to becoming a champion.
The top chefs in Toronto (Oct. 19), Calgary (Oct. 25), Edmonton (Oct. 26), Victoria (Oct. 27), Halifax (Nov. 1) and Vancouver (Nov. 10) will treat 400 to 600 guests to an exquisitely themed meal which relates to Lori-Ann and her co-hosts Silken Laumann, Adam van Koeverden, Kyle Shewfelt and Simon Whitfield.
The objective is to raise money and awareness for six of Canadaâ€šs sports federations, including cycling. National Track Coach Eric Van den Eynde encourages you to support the events, "as proceeds are targeted to help identify and develop new talent, and additional money would allow the Association to upgrade equipment which will bring us closer to the other nations competing on the track."
This is your chance to have a direct impact on our national team programs as your attendance will directly benefit our national team athletes.
