On Saturday, October 10th at noon, CKDU Sports will be holding its 3rd fundraising show, trying to raise much needed cash for Halifax’s community radio station, CKDU 88.1 FM, ckdu.ca.
The mandate of CKDU Sports is to provide detailed analysis and coverage of Halifax sports. This past 9 months I have had phone and studio interviews with dozens of local athletes, coaches, and media, including in no particular order;
Chad Lucas, Steve Sumarrah, Pete Belliveau, Dr. Carolyn Savoy, John Campbell, John Macneil, Chris Tremblay, Anna Stammburger, Scott Munro, Trevor Steinburg, Simon Farine, Adam Tenwolde, Ryan Jenner, Andrew Sullivan, Dan Reed, David Fry, Colin Power, Ross Hagen, Wilf Jackson, Rachel Wise, Mitchell Kidney, Mark Forward, and Dyrick McDermott, our dear friend who was sadly and tragically taken from us in the early spring.
Tomorrow’s show will be strictly dedicated to asking for your donation to CKDU. Any amount of money you can contribute is greatly appreciated. CKDU has established a number of prizes that you can receive with pledges of 25, 50, or 75 dollars. These include entries into 3 incredible grand prizes, CKDU t-shirts, discount cards, and other goodies that are sure to please.
