With incredible athletes of yesterday…and today! 

What connects Canadian track athlete and 3-time Olympian Harry Jerome, and professional football player Brian Nugent?

Well, courage, passion and dedication are just a few of the traits these accomplished athletes share. And while Brian never knew Harry personally, he can definitely relate to his life and challenges.

Meet both of these inspiring athletes – one through watching the film, Harry Jerome: The Fastest Man on Earth, and the other, Brian Nugent, live in our upcoming virtual classroom!
