On Sunday, August 25th, CCDD had the privilege of skating with Bruce House in the Capital Pride Parade. 2013 marked our third year supporting Bruce House at the parade and this year we had the honour of helping them celebrate their 25th anniversary.
Bruce House offers both independent living assistance and 24-hour care to people living with HIV/AIDS in Ottawa. By supporting activities of daily living and offering personal care, counseling, and advocacy to and for those living with HIV/AIDS, Bruce House has made and continues to make a difference in Ottawa. Pride and inclusiveness are two of the many values that Bruce House embodies.
Roller derby has always been associated with inclusiveness. From its beginnings as a fringe sport, roller derby often appealed to those who didn’t feel that they fit in elsewhere. As we move towards the mainstream, CCDD, as part of the larger roller derby community, is proud to continue to value and foster inclusiveness.
Thank you to Bruce House for inviting us to celebrate your silver anniversary with you. If you’d like to get them a gift to celebrate this milestone, please visit them online at http://www.brucehouse.org/donations_howto.htm to learn more.
