      April 27, 2017 – Freedom 55 Financial has signed Web.com Tour professional golfer, Corey Conners and para-nordic skier, Brittany Hudak to be a part of their Team Freedom roster. Conners and Hudak join a team of athletes who have the drive, determination and talent to succeed. 
       
      Conners, a 25-year-old Listowel, ON native, is a professional golfer on the Web.com Tour. He’s well on his way to achieving his dream of playing on the PGA TOUR. Conners’ father introduced him to golf at the age of four. Conners would go on to have a successful amateur career, being named to Golf Canada’s Development Squad and placing second in the 2014 U.S. Amateur Championship. This finish granted him the opportunity to participate in the 2015 Masters Tournament as the highest placing amateur in the field. Playing on the Web.com Tour in 2017, Conners is off to a great start, currently sitting 19th on the Tour’s Money List. 
       
      “Joining the Team Freedom roster and being included with some of Canada’s top young athletes is a tremendous honour,” says Conners. “As an individual who prides himself on having a great support system, it’s exciting to be supported by an organization like Freedom 55 Financial that shares important values like commitment to achieving your goals.”
       
      Hudak is a 23-year-old para-nordic skier from Prince Albert, SK. Born missing a portion of her left arm, Hudak remained active throughout her youth participating in track and field, basketball and badminton. Hudak didn’t recognize her future in para-nordic skiing until the age of 18, when she was introduced to and recruited by fellow cross-country skier and Paralympic medalist Collette Bourgonje. She would go on to find immediate competitive success, leading to her ascension in the sport. She continues to sharpen her skills and train relentlessly to attain her goal of reaching the Paralympic podium in 2018.
       
      “I’m thrilled and immensely grateful to be joining the Team Freedom roster, alongside young Canadian athletes striving towards similar athletic aspirations,” says Hudak. “Teaming up with Freedom 55 Financial, a partner that is committed to my journey as a Paralympic athlete, is not only great for me as an athlete but a good sign for Paralympic athletes in Canada.”
       
      “We’re excited to welcome these two talented athletes to Team Freedom,” says Mike Cunneen, who leads Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life Wholesaling and Product Solutions. “Corey and Brittany have shown immense potential in their respective sports. By surrounding themselves with the people they need to help them succeed, they’re one step closer to achieving their athletic goals. We’re honoured to be a part of their respective teams.”
