A special visit of Olympic proportion

Simon Whitfield, Alexandra Bruce and SickKids patients enjoy some crafts

Canadian Olympic and Paralympic athletes stopped by SickKids on September 20 as part of the 2012 Heroes Tour.

The athletes and SickKids patients had a chance to make medals and played foosball, air hockey and Wii. Some athletes also took the time to visit with patients that were unable to join in the festivities in Marnie's Lounge. The SickKids visit was topped off by a coffee break with athletes and staff, hosted by our very own Dr. Greg Wells, a physiologist who specializes in health and performance in extreme conditions and worked as the sport science and sport medicine analyst for the Canadian Olympic Broadcast Consortium for the 2010 and 2012 Olympic Games.
