Rock Out for Make Some Noise for Mental Health

October 17, 2023


The Olds College Broncos are thrilled to participate in the ninth annual "Make Some Noise for Mental Health" campaign, presented by Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) and hosted by the Alberta Colleges Athletics Conference (ACAC). This initiative is dedicated to raising awareness and support for mental health and is designed to bring together students, athletes, and their communities.

"The Make Some Noise for Mental Health campaign is one of the most important initiatives we participate in each year. Mental health continues to be a prominent struggle for student-athletes, and anything we can do to bring awareness and help students feel comfortable talking about their mental health is vital." says Trina Radcliffe, Manager of Athletics. 

The Broncos kicked off their “Rockstar”-themed campaign with an exciting Athletes March across the campus of Olds College of Agriculture & Technology earlier today. This march sets the stage for a series of exhilarating activities focusing on mental health and wellness to happen throughout the coming weeks.

It is notable that, as part of their ongoing commitment to mental health, the Broncos earned the $1,000 prize during last season’s campaign. Those monies were allocated to on-campus projects aimed at enhancing students’ mental health. 

To help raise extra funds this year, rockstar themed mental health stickers will be available for purchase by donation at each game. Money raised from these sales will go towards on-campus mental health initiatives. 

Game attendees are encouraged to put on their best rockstar attire, bring their noise makers and get ready to make some noise for mental health. 

Join the Olds College Broncos in making some noise for mental health and showing that together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and our community.
