As part of the Women of Influence Luncheon Series, the OUA will be recognizing an outstanding young woman from each of the Ontario universities who have excelled both in academics and athletics this past year. Congratulating them on their accomplishments will be one of Canada’s most celebrated international athletes, Charmaine Crooks. The five-time Olympian will be the keynote speaker, addressing the anticipated 1,000 people in attendance on “Passion and Peak Performance”.
