Lucas has been cross country skiing since the age of 6.  He was born with three heart malformations.  He has undergone two open heart and two closed heart operations since birth, and he perseveres and continues to compete.  He returned to competition last weekend in Red Deer after undergoing an aortic valve transplant only four months ago.  Despite pain and side effects, he never gives up in a race, even if he finishes last.  He is also a coach for Foothills Nordic, sharing his passion for cross country skiing with Bunnies and Jackrabbits twice a week.  He is a HERO to us all!
