The Heartbeat

Apologies for the shortened (and late) holiday edition.

Check the SportCafé calendar ( for ongoing event information with links and updates.

If you are participating in or know of an event that could be featured, please contact me: suzanne[at]sportcafe[dot]ca or via Twitter @olympichearts.

It may be a little late to receive a gift for Christmas, but you can still support our athletes by purchasing some great gifts, like:

Survival bracelet from bobsledder Jesse Lumsden. Click here. Back in stock - but won't last long.
Toque (variety available) from luger Sam Edney. Click here.
CanFund calendar. Click here.
(Don't mean to omit other athletes, these are the three I saw tweeted today. Feel free to tweet or email me and I will add it to the newsletter.)
