YOU the Student Competitor

In Uncategorized on January 10, 2012 at 7:20 pm

This blog is all about YOU. Yes, YOU! YOU the student who is constantly looking for more hours in the day but still wants to help out in your community. January is Alzheimer Awareness Month and during this month, the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia offers a competition amongst the colleges and universities in the province.

So if YOU are on a sports team, involved in student council, a member of a society, or YOU just want to get involved in your community then here is your chance!  Contact us and get set to start competing in the challenge.

However, you should know that winning the challenge won’t be easy. The Acadia Axemen have been sweeping the competition in the past – but maybe that’s because they haven’t been up against your team yet.

Think YOU can raise more than the Acadia Axemen? All it takes is YOU getting involved. YOU the fundraiser, YOU the student, YOU the difference maker.

So call or email us, we would love to hear from YOU.  We appreciate the dedication from everyone who competes in the University-College Challenge. Funds raised go right back into your community to help create awareness and support those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

It’s important for YOU, as today’s youth, to realize the importance of early detection of dementia because a diagnosis affects an entire family.

Through a little competitive fun YOU can set an example for other students across the province. YOU can be a  role model.

For more information or to join the challenge, please call us at 1-800-611-6345 or email beth.jackson@asns.ca
