UBCO Heat Athletic Scholarship Breakfast – presented by RBC

Supporting Student Athletes in the Okanagan

Dr. Meghan Grant


2019's Featured speaker: Dr. Meghan Grant 

Meghan is an example of the power of sport and exercise to change lives. From the young girl who was lost in gym class and was a sedentary and unhealthy medical resident less than 7 years ago, she built a life without limits and is now a physician in both Emergency and Sport Medicine who has represented Canada worldwide while on her bike.

A semifinalist in the most recent Canadian astronaut recruitment campaign and a co-founder of Leap Biosystems, Dr. Grant serves as an ambassador and athlete mentor through the RBC Olympians and the Classroom Champions programs. Come join us to hear Meghan’s story.

Funds raised through this annual event go directly to the Athletics Scholarship endowment at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Since 2006, the funds raised at the Athletics Scholarship Breakfast have supported more than 200 student athletes in achieving their academic and athletic goals. Read More
