Haley Wickenheiser’s sporting legacy is staggering.  5 time Olympian - 4 Gold medals (1 Silver), 7 Gold Medals at the World Championships (5 Silvers) , 10  4 Nations Cups, 3 National Championships, Member of the Order of Canada, as well as named one of the "Top 100 Most Influential People in Hockey" by The Hockey News (ranked #59 on the 2011 List), one of the "25 Toughest Athletes" by Sports Illustrated and one of the "Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Canada" by The Globe and Mail.

In 2014 she was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame where she shared the honour with Grafton’s Grace Bowen. Grace’s father Greg will be on hand to welcome Hayley to Cobourg.

Wickenheiser’s passion for sport is matched by her desire to give back to the community in her work with organizations such as JumpStart, KidSport, Project North, Right to Play , Ovarian Cancer Canada and many others. In 2007, she travelled to Rwanda with a team of Canadian Olympic athletes for Right to Play, an athlete-driven, global organization using the transformative power of play to educate and empower children and youth. In 2011, she returned to Africa on a similar goodwill mission to Ghana.

Putting her pursuit of a BSc at the University of Calgary to good use, Hayley has led numerous projects with the goal of raising the profile of women’s hockey around the world. She is constantly working to provide mentoring opportunities for young athletes including her legacy project – The Wickenheiser World Female Hockey Festival (www.wickfest.com).

“We’re thrilled to have her come to Cobourg to support Attitudes for Education” says event organizer Kym Read. Hayley’s message is perfect for kids and families. She embodies success, character, dedication, community and giving back, all values shared by the Attitudes For Education. She‘s a perfect fit and we’re grateful to have her in Cobourg. It’s going to be an amazing night!”
