News & Highlights

Cops & Crepes 2016


 


Cora's annual Cops and Crepes was recently held in Red Deer.The event raised just over $3,700.00 from both direct donations and through merchandise sales. We were fortunate to have two beautiful days outside so we were able to display our merchandise outside and attract customers to the restaurant. We also worked hard to have media attention for the event; announcements were made on the radio throughout the weekend and the Red Deer advocate stopped in to take some photos. 





Red Deer's swim program has a new crop of young swimmers this year that bring excitement and enthusiasm to the pool.



Annual Appreciation Christmas Dinner on Dec 6


Flashback Freddie entertained everyone at the Annual Appreciation Christmas dinner on Dec 6 in Red Deer. 
Santa also made a visit to the dinner and was able to spend time with the Red Deer athletes. 





Red Deer’s success at garnering awards at the Special Olympics Alberta annual awards luncheon continued in 2015 with Michael Dartnell receiving the Male Coach of The Year Award. Michael is the head coach for Floor Hockey and the Softball A Team and has been instrumental in the success of those teams at the provincial and national levels. Congratulations Michael for a job well done.
