On Thursday, August 24, my grandpa was diagnosed with stage 4 mouth and throat cancer. On Friday, August 25 at noon, he passed away. My grandpa was a huge Saskatchewan Roughrider fan, in fact, he had to pick out his favorite rider jersey to wear to day one of his treatment. With my family spread out around the country and as far away as Australia, we all thought that attending the Labour Day Classic in Regina would be the most appropriate way to celebrate my grandpa’s life. If you are from SK, you know that securing 8 tickets together at the game is quite impossible.
My aunt’s colleague who heard the story sent out some notes to a few friends in SK to see where to start about getting game day tickets. The 620 CKRM family of stations came through with an awesome solution which landed my family 8 tickets together in the 8th row for the game.
A great reminder of how people came together, in short order, to support my family! Go riders go!
