Curling superstars to help raise awareness of teen suicide prevention
Raising awareness of teen suicide prevention in a fun atmosphere is the focus of a special curling skins game set for tomorrow night.
Hurry Hard fo Hope is a four end match featuring the Eve Muirhead and Niklas Edin rinks taking on Sherry Middaugh and the Jon Mead-skipped Jeff Stoughton rink.
Organizing committee member Tom Pura says local junior curlers will also take part, which is important because that is the age group they are targeting through this event.
“We want to make sure that teens are aware that there are some great opportunities out there, and there is a lot of support for them, and that they can be open to talking to anyone if they are struggling, or anything like that we want to make sure that teens are engaged.”
Doors open at 6:30 tomorrow night at the Grande Prairie Curling club. It’s free to attend but donations are welcome.
All proceeds from the night, which includes several silent auctions, will go to the Hannah Ouellette Memorial Fund.
