Six-time Olympic medallist Clara Hughes will make an appearance at a Winnipeg high school today as part of her cross-Canada tour raising mental-health awareness.

Hughes will appear at 8:30 a.m. at Elmwood High School at 505 Chalmers Ave.

More than 50 people showed up at Clara Hughes Recreation Park to hear her speak Saturday.

Hughes hails from the Elmwood neighbourhood in which the park is located.

Over the last 93 days, she has been riding her bike across Canada to visit communities and talk about mental-health issues. The tour is called Clara's Big Ride and is sponsored by Bell Canada.

Appearing with Hughes today will be Premier Greg Selinger and Healthy Living and Seniors Minister Sharon Blady.

Hughes plans to continue her trip later today. Her next destination is Kenora.
