Olympian signs WJH’s blue bike to promote mental health

Review photo 5034 — Greg Nikkel

Olympic athlete Clara Hughes signs her autograph on the front tire of the “blue bike”, one of two bikes created by the MALT Squad at the Weyburn Junior High in advance of Hughes’ visit to the school on Wednesday. The students will raffle one of the bikes off to raise money for the Canadian Mental Health Association; this bike will be kept at the school for display, and will be used next year to promote good mental health. Hughes spoke about her personal struggles with depression with the junior high students before setting off east on Highway 13 for Carlyle, on her way to Ottawa where she will finish her ride on July 1.
