RDC ready to Make Some Noise for Mental Health
Red Deer College will join the campaign to support mental health this weekend.
Speed skating Olympian Anastasia Bucsis of Calgary will be on hand Friday as part of the nation-wide Make Some Noise for Mental Health.
“Anastasia is a strong advocate for mental health and we’re lucky to have her at the college to share the message,” said RDC Athletics Director Diane St. Denis.
“While Anastasia is here as part of the Make Some Noise campaign it’s also a great connection to RDC’s Take Some Time campaign, which encourages people to share online how they use positive practices to manage their mental health.”
Bucsis will speak with female high school basketball players, who will be on hand for the Queens invitational, and will be available for photos and autographs before and during the RDC games.
