Students who have found a way to support an organization through fundraising or volunteering will be rewarded for their efforts tomorrow.
More than 3000 Peace Region students will be in attendance at Mighty Peace Day 2015.
Host Ryan Blais says he is excited about being able to give back to youth, and about being a part of an event that empowers kids to give back.
“It’s not the easiest thing to give back and have an impact, even youth that would like to do so, you need an opportunity. Yes youth can create their own opportunity, but we have a day that brings thousands of them together for one common purpose, and it provides those opportunities for them to get involved.”
Canadian band Neverest will be on stage tomorrow as well.
Paul Loduca with the band says last year the band toured Canada to perform as a thank you for kids for the work that they have done giving back to their communities.
“We were so fortunate to see people raise literally tens of thousands of dollars, like young children, ages 10 and 11. Mighty Peace Day is a great example of that, it’s the youth getting involved so that they can put on things in their own community so that there’s things that they give back.”
Some more of tomorrow’s big speakers include Free the Children founder Craig Keilburger, paraplegic skiier Josh Dueck, Actress Michelle Thrush, motivational speaker Spencer West, and the Robb Nash Project.
