Kreek won Gold in rowing at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and has 27 international medals to his name through a 13 year career. Now he uses his experiences to help as a motivational speaker.
The Public Event starts at 11:30 with a free lunch and Kreek's talk starting at noon, going till around one.
"The main point and the main method that I'm bringing is the power of generosity," Kreek said in a phone interview, "One of the secrets to success is figuring how you can give in your unique way, because we're all unique and have unique skills and talents. Obviously my background is sports as a sportsman, but there are many different ways to give."
Kreek has his Gold Medal with him and there will be an opportunity for attendees to get up close with one of the top prizes in sports.
Coming up in December, Kreek will be rowing across the Atlantic to raise funds for 'Right to Play'. After today's talk, I'll have a chat with him about that undertaking and some of the other projects he has on the go.
It was an interesting and entertaining presentation to take in. Kreek headed to the high school after the public event, I'm sure the students enjoyed the chat.
Here's one of the interactive activities from the afternoon:
That's La Ronge Mayor Thomas Sierzycki at the head of the "boat".
The big challenge for Kreek is the upcoming row across the Atlantic. It's kind of tough to imagine four people on their own in an oversized row boat on the second largest ocean on the Planet. Kreek and his team will do a trial run coming up this summer when they travel around Vancouver Island.
We'll have to check back in with Adam before the big event.
