Paralympic medallist to highlight night of mental health and comedy

Posted by Adam in Local Events, 9/3, 9:57 AM

Just days after event Dream 2 Inspire checked every possible box in both raising funds for Westman Dreams for Kids, entertaining and inspiring a sold out crowd, a local promoter with a unique focus on championing community causes has wasted no time in announcing plans for its next event. 

Headlined by 2014 Sochi Paralympic sledge hockey bronze medallist Kevin Rempel, “Walk the Talk- The Hero Mindset” is billed as “An evening of inspiration, courage and resiliency.” 

Rempel is author of “Still Standing,” an inspirational account of overcoming unimaginable obstacles after a freestyle motocross accident left him wheelchair-bound. More on Rempel’s story can be learned at https://kevinrempel.com. He’ll be joined by Comedian/Mental Health Advocate Jon Ljungberg and Mental Health Advocate Big Daddy Tazz for an evening with a core theme focusing on mental health. 

All will take place on November 6 from 6:30-8:30pm at the Keystone Centre’s Amphitheatre. 

The event is being held in support of Brandon Wheelchair Sports & Leisure. BWSL is described as a non-profit with an interest in making a difference for people with mobility impairments in Westman, with 100% of BWSL’s funds going into developing wheelchair sports in the area. A pre-arranged amount from sales based on the amount of tickets sold goes to BWSL. 

The evening’s show is the latest endeavour of The Pandolfi Initiative, whose Dreams 2 Inspire event this past Wednesday featuring Robin Chestnut and Patrick Gregoire sold out all 544 of its available tickets. 

Tickets for “Walk the Talk” go on sale today for $40 each, 2 for $75, 4 for $135 or 8 for $250 and can be bought at http://tickets.keystonecentre.com
