Club needs community in its corner

In regards to the chance to bring TSN and Sportscentre to Red Deer, what a fabulous opportunity for Red Deer to showcase to Canada our wonderful city and provide the Red Deer Boxing Association with much needed funds ($25,000) to renovate its facility and upgrade its equipment accordingly.

In regards to the chance to bring TSN and Sportscentre to Red Deer, what a fabulous opportunity for Red Deer to showcase to Canada our wonderful city and provide the Red Deer Boxing Association with much needed funds ($25,000) to renovate its facility and upgrade its equipment accordingly.

The Red Deer Boxing Association is run by a dedicated group of parents and coaches on a minimal budget; yet, it has been able to survive for more than 20 years in our community.

There are countless hours spent by individuals to maintain their current location; hours spent on coaching and training the various recreational and competitive athletes, and hours spent personally mentoring these young individuals. All the while, the club has been able to produce high-calibre athletes and produce provincial, national and junior Olympic champions.

This event also highlights the role that many community service clubs provide in our community as the Piper Creek Optimist Club has provided by initiating this endeavour and looking to match the potential donation from Kraft and TSN with its own fundraising dollars.

Service clubs, like the Piper Creek Optimists, play a significant role in building our cities and towns, and typically in an unnoticed fashion.

To reach the ultimate goal and win this contest will require the support of our whole community.

Everyone can help by simply casting an online vote for Red Deer at www.votereddeer.com between 10 a.m. July 15th and 10 a.m. July 16th.

Bring TSN to Red Deer!
