Winnipeg Olympic speed skater Cindy Klassen is helping to launch a new sports facility in the West Bank next month.

Klassen will travel to Mureir Mountain, Bethlehem to open the Dar Al Kalima Sports Hall, which will host a women’s sports centre. It’s the first of its kind in the region and will fill a need for sports and fitness opportunities for Palestinian girls and women.

Klassen’s trip coincides with a the “Empowering Women in Sports” symposium, which opens on March 2.

“It is an honour to help launch the Dar Al Kalima Sports Hall,” Klassen said in a release. “I hope this venue will be a springboard for personal growth and athletic accomplishment for many girls and women.”

Klassen is travelling as an ambassador with Canadian Lutheran World Relief.
