The 12 Days of Inspiration: Day Twelve

On the twelfth day of inspiration my OT gave to me:

Clara Hughes, a Canadian Olympic athlete in both the summer and winter games for cycling and speed skating.  She set world records by becoming the first Olympic athlete to win medals at both the summer and winter games.  Clara is an inspiration to the world not only for her athletic accomplishments, but as a spokesperson about depression issues from which she suffers. Hughes uses her struggles with depression to help others and to help combat fight the stigma involved with mental health. This year Clara began annual bike rides across the country in order to raise awareness about mental health.
