Catherine and Craig first met at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School almost 25 years ago and have been best friends ever since. Catherine was the woman of honour in Craig’s wedding, and Craig was her best man. He is now the Godfather of both of her children.

A Broadway, film, and television performer, Catherine’s stage credits include 42nd Street, Oklahoma, and Annie Get Your Gun. In 2013, she was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and told she had two to six years to live. Following surgery and years of treatment, she has now passed the six-year mark and feels oddly grateful for the diagnosis, as it taught her how to live life to the fullest. She continues to perform locally, volunteers, and raises funds in the hopes of expanding brain cancer research and finding a cure.

A triple threat, Craig’s passion for theatre began at a young age. In addition to performances in productions such as Anne of Green Gables-The Musical, Mamma Mia!, and Fiddler on the Roof, Craig is also a fitness expert, TV personality, and author. He is an outspoken member of the LGBTQ+ community and his first year of married life with his husband was documented worldwide in the series Newlyweds: The First Year. Craig currently divides his time between Canada and the U.S.

Catherine and Craig are racing for everyone who has faced medical challenges and for their loved ones who support them through it. Their goal is to show Catherine’s children how strong, determined, and courageous their mother was during her cancer battle.

FUN FACTS

What would your team name be?

Team Broadway.

What is your team motto?
Read the clues or feel the blues!

What does your team have that makes you the team to beat?
We’ve been best friends for longer than some of the other teams have been alive, and we’re used to eight shows a week with the motto, “The show must go on!” We’re physically and mentally strong, and have faced and overcome major challenges where others might have quit.

What is your good luck charm?
Catherine: I have two pieces of paper with me for this race – one my son Elliot kissed 100 times and asked me to kiss everyday for good luck, and artwork of a rainbow by my daughter Quinn, with the request that I look at it every day for good luck.

Craig: My loud and proud Captain von Trapp whistle – it commands attention when words don’t do the moment justice. This necklace always brings me luck, from the red carpet to leading large group fitness “stretch and wine” classes. Hoping it blows some luck our way on the race.

Which team member was the hardest to convince to join The Amazing Race Canada and why?

We were equally excited – but we had to convince our husbands!

Been a while since I've seen platonic coed friends on any version of the race.

The two had secured their spot on the show in 2020, but filming was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Looks like these two were on the original cast.

"I didn’t know if I would live this long to be a part of it," Wreford Ledlow says. "But I had an MRI right before I left and one when I got back and it was all stable, so that was great."

Wait.  How did Craig get on the show if he's an American resident?

Via Leafsfan:

Fans of The Amazing Race Canada will have noticed that the duo recently had to leave the show due to testing positive for COVID-19, but fear not! Both Ramsay and Ledlow have been teasing their return to the race telling viewers to "keep watching" to find out what happens next.
