The 56th Annual Red Feather event is pleased to announce the addition of Cogeco/TVCogeco as a major sponsor. The week-long event organized by local high school ambassadors begins Wednesday, 2013 SEPT 18.  

Cogeco/TVCogeco‘s sponsorship of the event has allowed for the creation of a video contest this year. Using the smartphone application Vine, students are being encouraged to submit a 6 second video clip displaying their school spirit at the different events throughout the week. Students can submit their video at Facebook.com/UnitedWayofChathamKent for a chance to win a Beats Audio headset.

 The generous sponsorship from Cogeco/TVCogeco allows United Way’s Youth Committee to organize activities and pay related costs while saving on campaign donated dollars.  Therefore, the money raised during Red Feather activities can be used to support the 25 programs, services and agencies supported through UWCK’s Community Fund. 

Throughout the week, high schools students will participate in various events including dodgeball, softball, two football games culminating in a tennis tournament on Sunday, 2013 SEPT 22 .  Events include:
