Club’s largest community donation to date!

The Rotary Club of Red Deer Urban Spirits is thrilled to share that they have made a $10,000 donation to the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre (CACAC).

The funds were raised through a successful application to the Rotary Foundation District 5360 Grant program and the 2019 Central Alberta Wing Fest that was held at Red Deer Titans Rugby Park on September 7.

“We are incredibly proud and excited to present this donation to the CACAC,” says Reg Warkentin, President, Rotary Club of Red Deer Urban Spirits. “The work being done by the CACAC is savings the lives of kids across Central Alberta. We’re so pleased to support their work to give vulnerable youth a second chance through our club’s largest donation yet.”

“Community groups like the Rotary Club of Red Deer Urban Spirits are so crucial in our community; their commitment and involvement allows organizations, like us, to do what we do,” shared Mark Jones, CEO, Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre.

“We have had the good fortune in having the Urban Spirits club as an avid supporter and advocate for our Centre, and we are honored to receive this generous donation. This contribution lets us continue to support the children of our community affected by child abuse, providing them and their families with the guidance and direction they so richly deserve.

“To everyone at the Rotary Club of Red Deer Urban Spirits who planned and volunteered at the event, along with all who participated and joined in Central Alberta Wing Fest – we thank you!”

I Did Everything the Family Nurse suggested and it Worked like Magic!

Published

on

Dionisio wasn’t feeling himself. He had very little energy, he was always sleepy and thirsty, he was craving sweets and needed to urinate often. When he described these symptoms to his doctor, the doctor sent him to the Family Nurse to review his lifestyle.

Dionisio listened to the nurse carefully and followed every suggestion. She suggested he make changes in his diet such as more fruits and vegetables, smaller portions, less treats and lots of other fine tuning. She also coached him on increasing exercise and exercising regularly.

He now uses the treadmill, bikes and lifts weights regularly and enjoys these activities. His goal was to lose at least 5 pounds with these changes, and he accomplished that. In a four-month period his hemoglobin A1C went from 16.6 to 6.5, a huge improvement in blood work and in how he feels.

Dionisio’s advice to anyone in a similar situation is, “To make change you have to follow the suggestions. That got me to where I want to be.”

Here are some other success stories from Red Deer Primary Care Network.
