Emails of Encouragement

 

Brayden Tegart is a force to be reckoned with on the basketball court. He is a grade 12 student at Memorial Composite High School in Stony Plain and plays on the Memorial Marauders Basketball Team. Brayden is also a coach for Stony Plain Basketball and a mentor to young athletes in the local basketball community.

This year has been particularly challenging for Brayden, as his father is dealing with a different force to be reckoned with – a form of Cancer known as Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). In an effort to provide support to Brayden and his family I am asking all members of the basketball community to take a moment to write a few words of encouragement in an email. All emails will be collected and presented to Brayden when my son, Arnold and I shave our heads at the end of February. As a challenge to all basketball families in the area, I am asking you show your support and demonstrate how awesome the basketball community is. Please send emails to mamanewf@shaw.ca . Thank-you for your support!

Sincerely,

Deana Verge
