Virtual walk

The Red Deer Primary Care Network is challenging you to a three-month virtual walk across Newfoundland. The fun and free trek starts on Friday with a launch party at the Red Deer PCN office from noon to 1 p.m. The office is located at 5130 47th St. You can register for the challenge as an individual or a team by calling 403-343-9100.

FASD Day

Prevention will be the theme of the International FASD Day event in Red Deer on Friday. Consuming alcohol during pregnancy is the sole cause of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, for which there is no cure. The local event will be held at The Hub on Ross starting at 8:30 a.m. with a breakFASD, a free light breakfast. A panel of women will talk about their experiences due to FASD and their thoughts on prevention. The first annual Central Alberta FASD Starfish award will honour those who have gone above and beyond in their support of individuals with FASD, or by bringing FASD awareness to their workplace or community. Everyone is welcome.
