  • This Saturday, August 19, 2017, a small army of yogis are set to take over Red Deer City Hall Park.

    The Stantec Central Alberta Yogathon will run from 10am- 2pm, raising funds and awareness for youth impacted by mental illness in our community. The 4-hour long yoga session will be facilitated by local yoga teachers, with pledgers raising money to participate. All proceeds will be donated to the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation, a local endowment initiated to carry on the legacy of a young local woman who took her life due to mental illness.

    The goal is to raise $15,000.00 for the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation, an endowment that funds local programs meant to educate youth and help prevent similar tragedies from occurring.  The Central Alberta Yogathon is a heartfelt event, which has brought over 50 participants together yearly to raise money and awareness for mental illness. Last year, the event raised $2,500 but this year, we anticipate over 100 yogis will participate.

    It is family friendly, open to all ages and experience levels, and is a great way to connect with like-minded individuals within our community that care about the general well-being of our residents.

    Brochures and pledge forms are readily available at local businesses including Stantec, local yoga studios, BIG 105 and 106.7 The Drive, and the Red Deer Library.

    Participants can participate without fundraising by paying a small $35 registration fee, which includes the 4 hour yoga session, refreshments, and a participant gift.  Registration fees will be waived for any participants who raise $200.00 or more.

    Raffle tickets are also available for purchase for those supporters unable to make it to the Yogathon. A $500 cash prize is up for grabs; tickets cost $5 each or 3 for $10 and are available at Stantec or by contacting cayogathon@gmail.com.

    We hope you will join us for this fun community event on Saturday!

  • Miss. G’s 7-5 class from St. Thomas Aquinas Middle School completed their Almsgiving Bake Sale Thursday with a total amount of $2736 raised for the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre!

    They were so excited to share their news of how much they raised since starting back in March!  Every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday through out lent, the 7-5’s would bring in treats that they made at home.  They sold the goodies to the rest of the student body at lunch to help raise funds to donate to the Centre.

    Thank you to Miss Goranson for putting this all on for the CACAC, and to the 7-5 class for being apart of this and wanting to help other kiddos – you are amazing!

  • As co-owner of Ryde RD Spin Cycling, Alex Wood may have had a slight athletic advantage over even the most physically fit celebrities in the 2019 Celebrity Dance Off.  Wood also trained as a dancer when she was growing up.  Did all that pay off?  Well some of the judges and many of the spectators were under the impression their might be two pros on the floor when Wood and pro partner Peter Samoila performed.  Check out this fast and flawless salsa / cha cha mix.  Amazing doesn’t do it justice!

    My Story…

    I grew up here in Red Deer, this is home. It took me a while to return after high school but I am so happy to be back. I co-own Ryde RD Spin Studio. Red Deer was the perfect place for my husband Dave and I to start our business.

    I studied at Montana Tech and graduated as a petroleum engineer. I met my husband there and we made our way to Calgary for work. After two and half years, I decided that a desk job wasn’t for me so we packed our bags, moved to Asia and travelled overseas. After too much fun in the sun, we decided to move to Red Deer to start Ryde.

    Supporting our clients and the community is very important to us. We’ve hosted many charity Ryde’s including one for the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off.

    Over the next few months, I’ll be putting my travel bug on hold, trading my spin shoes in for dancing shoes, and trying to regain my dancing skills from my teenage years. I’m honored to be a part of this event and passionate about the cause.
