Red Deer College
Scholarship breakfast student session
The Students’ Association of Red Deer College is proud to present Clint Malarchuk: The Save of A Lifetime student session Monday, March 30. The session, which free of charge and open to all RDC students, runs from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Four Centres (2900).
Malarchuk, a former NHL goalie, was gravely injured when a skate cut his throat during a game. He will talk about his battle with mental illness and the challenges he has faced.
The student session is presented by the Students’ Association through its Mental Health Initiative with support from Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation.
In addition to the student session, Malarchuk will also be the guest speaker at the 12th annual Kings & Queens Scholarship Breakfast on March 31, 2015 at the Prairie Pavilion at Westerner Park. More information can be found at rdc.ab.ca/breakfast or call 403-343-4016.
The Kings and Queens Scholarship Breakfast creates a way for student athletes to pursue their dreams of sports and education. Since its inception, this event has raised more than $280,000 for athletic scholarships. It is through these scholarships that RDC student-athletes are able to pursue their love of sport, without the extra concern of fundraising.
