Olympic curling medallist Cheryl Bernard to run marathon for World Vision

When Cheryl Bernard won curling silver for Canada at the Vancouver Olympics, she and her teammates vowed they would do more with their medals than just “hang them in a case on the wall.”

She stayed true to her word.

That’s why less than a month after her heartbreaking upset at the curling pre-qualifying event that ended her dreams of a second Olympic appearance, she’s already turned her thoughts to helping others.

The 47-year-old Bernard is training for the Calgary Marathon on June 1, where she’ll lead a team of runners raising money and awareness for World Vision.
