CAN Fund Testimonial:
The CAN Fund is a very unique program set out to directly help Canadian Athletes achieve their dreams on their journey to the next Olympics. My name is Megan Wright and I am thrilled to be one of the elite Canadian Athletes to receive the $6,000 fund this year. This money will go directly to paying for travel to and from competitions as I prepare this year for the Commonwealth Games and get closer to London 2012.
15:11- 5000m, 4:10.28- 1500m. 2005 NCAA Champ, 2007 Pan American Champ, 2008 Olympic Finalist.
I am a twin, the youngest of six kids whom are all great athletes. My one real superstition is that I like to eat Salmon the day before I race. I do not like having this superstition but every time I try to break it, I race terrible!
