Dress red next week

For the fifth year in a row Williams Lake is being challenged to dress in red on Feb. 17.

For the fifth year in a row Williams Lake is being challenged to dress in red on Feb. 17.

That could mean donning a red shirt, dressing up the workplace with red hues, or decorating with items that promote healthy living.

It’s all part of the annual Heart and Stroke Foundation campaign, says this year’s co-ordinator April Ewasiuk of Royal Bank Canada in Williams Lake.

“We’re hoping lots of people will be on board with the Dress Red Day. We have contacted various businesses about it,” Ewasiuk says, adding over the last five years, the campaign has been competing back and forth between RBC and HUB International Barton Insurance Brokers.

Groups are asked to choose a team red co-ordinator who will encourage everyone at their workplace or organization to participate and donate $5 each to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

There will be judges, prizes and newspaper photos for the best dressed red business, and if places don’t want to participate, they can simply donate funds.

“One of the prizes is Harvey Heart, a teddy bear that lives in the workplace for the year. He’s been living at HUB Barton Insurance the last year,” says Ewasiuk.

Anyone wanting to register or inquire about the campaign can contact Ewasiuk at 250-398-2526.
