Radio for a better cause

On Tuesday the 20th of November, Red River Radio will host a Radiothon. The Radiothon is being put on by the public relations majors at the college. I happen to be a public relations major at the college, meaning that I get the opportunity to play a vital role in organizing and producing the actual show.

Here is an example of the enthusiasm and commitment that the public relations majors have here at Red River College.

This was the first promotional event planned by the public relations majors for this event, and as you can tell from the video, they have a lot of energy and passion for the cause. The theme of the Radiothon is Rally for Red and the goal is to have over thirty people donate blood. The public relations majors partnered with the Canadian Blood Services.

The Canadian Blood Services has provided our team with much support and resources. The staff have been available questions and excited about the efforts the public relations majors have made.

I'm very excited to see the fruition of all the hard work that my colleagues have put into this blood drive. I'm also excited to participate in the Radiothon as an on air voice with my pal Joe. Joe and myself will be doing a shift from 1-7 pm.

The Radiothon runs from 7-7 and should be quite the experience.
