Rebels & Child Advocacy Centre Team Up
The Red Deer Rebels, supported by NOVA Chemicals, will be championing the efforts of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre (CACAC) this week, in raising awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month as part of the #GoBlue campaign, and funds for the operational needs of the CACAC!
Starting at 9:00am Oct. 17, until 9:30pm on Oct. 22 (including both Rebel home games this week), half the proceeds from the Rebels 50/50 will be donated directly to the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre. Tickets can be purchased online 24/7, or at either home game this week!
Also, in an effort to highlight ongoing awareness for the CACAC, the Rebels player helmets will showcase both NOVA Chemicals and the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre for the duration of the 2022-23 season!
Currently under construction at Red Deer Polytechnic, the projected 66,566 sq. ft. CACAC Centre of Excellence will be the new home of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre, Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre, Alberta Health Services: Red Deer Child and Youth Addiction and Mental Health Outpatient Clinic, and the Step Up Step Down youth live-in addiction and mental health program.
About Go Blue
The #GoBlueAB was initiated four years ago at the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre in Red Deer, Alberta and now is recognized by all the Child Advocacy Centres of Alberta as well as BC and Manitoba.
This initiative is about awareness; through education and understanding, we can help stop the cycle of abuse.
We #GoBlue to honour the 1 in 3 Canadians impacted by a form of child abuse.
We #GoBlue to spark conversation and provide necessary education about child abuse to our communities.
We #GoBlue to celebrate the resiliency of those who have experienced abuse.
It takes unimaginable courage for a child to come and share their story of abuse. It takes courage to stand up and speak up against the cycle of abuse.
