A Special Event Close to my Heart
My name is Liz Manley and I suffered from mental health issues.
You may recall that I won the Silver Medal for Canada at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary. The Olympics was the highlight of my career and maybe even my life but it didn’t come without some serious hardships. Luckily I found the help I needed.
Mental health issues are on the rise, especially among teens. With the help of my friends, we are presenting a two-day fundraiser to raise both awareness and resources to assist two Ottawa charities: Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa and Ottawa Senators Foundation – Physical & Mental Wellness.
Overcoming adversity was my greatest challenge, more so than skating at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary. It is also my greatest accomplishment. With your support, we can help Ottawa area teens in need get the help they deserve so that they too can find mental wellness.
We’re so excited to bring you our Skate Gala Dinner and Star Studded Ice Show on February 13 and 14, 2015. I look forward to seeing you there!
