"You're on Team Canada now," says six-time Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser
Team Canada great Hayley Wickenheiser put one on the board for front-line workers with a last ditch tweet. The four-time Olympic gold medalist took to social media to ask for PPE donations in the Toronto area, offering to collect the items herself.
"I don't have much to offer in return, maybe a signed jersey, a smile and guaranteed good Karma," she wrote.
The hockey legend retired in 2017, with four Olympic gold medals, and is in her third year of medical school. She's studying general medicine now, but would like to specialize in emergency medicine.
Actor Ryan Reynolds chimed in on Twitter, saying "people who help Hayley" gather personal protective equipment "will get something awesome from me."
Their campaign linked up with conquercovid19.ca to coordinate an even larger effort. Together they've delivered several car-loads of medical equipment to health care professionals in the GTA.
