Mario Lemieux is one of Canada's greatest hockey legends and is an inspirational role model. A gifted forward with the Pittsburgh Penguins, he won numerous awards for his scoring skills and his leadership on the ice. He also captained Canada's men's hockey team to gold at the 2002 Winter Olympics. His attitude in coming back from serious health issues during his on-ice career has set an example of the power of determination and perseverance for young players. Now a co-owner of the Penguins, he also supports fundraising initiatives for the Hockey Canada Foundation and the Mario Lemieux Foundation, which provide funds for medical and other charitable organizations.
