  • Gian Estoesta’s path hasn’t always been the smoothest one.  Living in relative poverty for much of his youth in The Philippines he had to go for long spells with just one parent as the other worked “overseas” to provide income.  Eventually the family was able to follow Gian’s mother to Canada where Red Deer became his new home.  Gian dove into his education and clearly into his community as well.  In high school at Ecole Notre Dame he achieved highest marks in his graduation class and was chosen Class Valedictorian.  All the while he was volunteering his services as a tutor for fellow students.  He also spent time every Wednesday afternoon volunteering at the hospital, and he dedicated efforts to annual events such as the Festival of Trees and Children’s Festival.

    As a young adult Estoesta has chosen to begin studying for a medical degree at Red Deer College.  With his marks he could easily have gone to a large University, but Gian wanted to stay close to home to help the family.  Just one more sign of selflessness for Red Deer’s 2018 Young Citizen of the Year!

  • From the Springbrook Community Skate Park Committee

    Springbrook Community Skate park Committee receives $125,000 CFEP grant from Government of Alberta

    Group is nearly 75% funded for the $635,000 Skate Park Facility

    Springbrook, a young, family oriented community located 8 km south of Red Deer, will benefit greatly from this grant. The $125,000 CFEP (Community Facility Enhancement Program) grant will bring the total funds raised for the project to approx. $455,000 of the $635,000 project total. Red Deer County ($305,000) and community fundraising efforts ($25,000 to date) have contributed to the total.

    Adrian Pidhirney, Committee Director, Springbrook Community Skatepark Committee and FCSS Community Worker commented, “This is a great opportunity for our small hamlet. With nearly 1/3 of our population of 1500 under the age of 20, this park will have major impact now and well into the future. We are hoping to begin construction late this summer, with a completion date of Spring 2020.”

    The remaining $180,000 will be raised through local fundraising efforts and through corporate sponsorship opportunities. Local businesses are encouraged to contact the Springbrook Community Skate park Committee regarding sponsorship opportunities. Please visit www.sc-sc.org or www.facebook.com/SpringbrookCommunitySkateparkCommittee for more information.

    Time is Muscle Fundraiser for Cardiac Cath Lab Saturday

    Published

  • In February of 2018 a group of volunteers, in conjunction with the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation hosted a Community Cardiac Awareness and Fundraising event called “Time is Muscle”

    Since the event rapidly sold-out, we are eager to forge ahead in 2019 with a larger venue at the sponsoring Sheraton Red Deer Hotel. “Time is Muscle” 2019 is a heart-themed 3 course plated dinner, a “Heartbeats Band: Songs from the Heart” Retro Rock & Roll Party, silent auction, live painting, art gallery & sale, 50/50 & vacation raffles and a fun photo corner. Guests are encouraged to wear red in solidarity for the cause!

    The purpose of the event once again is to raise funds to enhance cardiac care at the Red Deer Regional Hospital with an emphasis on the acquisition of a cardiac catheterization lab, to raise public awareness of cardiac (heart) health and the need for hospital expansion.

    Currently, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in Canada. Cardiac catheterization is a specialized procedure to unblock coronary arteries that feed the heart (also known as an angioplasty) in the event of a heart attack.

    Corporate and personal donations are sincerely appreciated including cash, products or services and will be issued a tax receipt and optional recognition. Business names will be presented alongside silent auction items at the event. You can also provide your own framed logo. See publications below.

    Sincerely yours, the Time is Muscle Team (Directors Vanessa Higgins-Nogareda & Harley Hay)

     

    Come lend your support for a Cardiac Catheterization Lab and Red Deer Hospital Expansion!

    Time is Muscle’s aim is to raise awareness that Central Albertans need a Cardiac Catheterization Lab and Red Deer Hospital Expansion. Funds raised will go towards Cardiac Care via the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation.
