  • The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month for November 2018 is Riley de Wit. Riley de Wit is a 17 year Red Deer resident and competitive Volleyball player with the Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School Raiders and the Central Alberta Queens Volleyball Club (CAQVC).

    Here is a brief synopsis of Riley’s recent athletic success:
    Co-captain LTCHS Raiders Senior Volleyball Team, 2018 ASAA 4A Provincial Volleyball Champions and 2018 CASAA Volleyball All-Star.
    Member of Lindsay Thurber Raiders volleyball team for 3 years – finishing 2nd in her Grade 10 season and winning back-to-back ASAA 4A Provincial Championships in Grade 11 and 12.
    Raiders ranked #1 in 4A Girls Volleyball in Alberta Schools Athletic Association all season.

    This season the Raiders have won 5 of 6 tournaments and finished 2nd in their other tournament.  Harry Ainlay is the only tournament that awarded All-Stars and Riley was named to the All-Star Team and selected at the TVT Tournament MVP.  Riley was a member of Team Alberta (17U) and captured a Bronze medal at Volleyball Canada’s inaugural Canada Cup this summer in Richmond, BC.

    Riley is also accomplished in track and field, representing Lindsay Thurber at ASAA Provincials the past two seasons, capturing a Bronze medal in the 4 x 100m relay and setting a personal best in long jump (4.97m and 6th place), and narrowly missing a place in the 100M Final in 2018.
    Riley captained her 17U Queens Volleyball team to a Division 2 National Championship this past spring – going undefeated at Provincials and Nationals in the process.

    With Riley’s strong work ethic, her undeniable athletic abilities and her training experiences with ASDC-Central she will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in her Volleyball career!
    ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.

    As Hair Massacure Returns for Another Year, Here’s A Moving Look at How it Began

  • On February 22, 2019, thousands of heads will be shaved in honour of the journey of sick children losing their hair due to chemotherapy.

    People will gather once again at the Toyota Mayfield Ice Palace at West Edmonton Mall to collectively shave their heads, raising money in support of Albertans facing cancer.

    The Hair Massacure is founded, supported and organized by The MacDonald Family, in honour of their daughter Kali, a childhood cancer survivor.

    The MacDonald family partners once again with the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and supports Terry Fox Profyle, a Pediatric cancer research project.

    With the support of their partners, the family plans to scale Hair Massacure to the national level with the support of the Children’s Wish Foundation, continuing to raise funding for pediatric cancer research and for children with life threatening illnesses.

    Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada

    Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is a 100% Canadian charity that grants the single-most heartfelt wishes of Canadian children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Every wish is as unique as the child making it.  In Alberta and the NWT, we grant a Wish every three days and approve around 180 new Wishes each year. Wish referrals can be made by anyone who has a child in their lives between the ages of 3-17 and meets the medical criteria. Become a supporter of the largest Wish granting organization in Canada today!

    Terry Fox Profyle

    For the first time in Canadian history, more than 30 pediatric cancer research and funding organizations have joined forces through Terry Fox PROFYLE, a pan-Canadian project to give children, adolescents and young adults who are out of conventional treatment options another chance to beat their cancer. Short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE, the Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) and these research and funding partners are working and fundraising together under a unique partnership that to date is providing a total of $16.4 million to molecularly profile the tumours of these patients, no matter where they live in Canada. For example, if Terry Fox had been diagnosed with cancer today, he would have been eligible for PROFYLE when the tumour returned and spread to his lungs. A $5-million investment by TFRI is the catalyst bringing together top scientists and clinicians, research centres, cancer charities and foundations at children’s hospitals across the country to create new hope for young people who need it the most.
