CDI College’s Mississauga Campus to Host Walk-a-Thon for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel
Mississauga, ON – May 27, 2015 – CDI
College’s Mississauga campus is hosting its 2nd Annual Big Brothers
Big Sisters of Peel (BBBSP) Walk-a-Thon on Wednesday,
June 3, 2015. Nearly 100 students and faculty have already registered to
participate in the walk, which starts at 10:30am
with 100% of pledge proceeds going directly to BBBSP.
For one hundred years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been making a positive difference in the lives of our nation’s youth by developing and implementing a wide range of mentoring programs. One-to-one and group programs, for both in school and outside of school. Last year’s walk-a-thon raised a grand total of $1,300!
Making a difference in our community — and having fun doing it.
Organized by CDI College’s Event Management class, planning the walk-a-thon has been a rewarding cause, which has provided invaluable practical experience for its students. CDI College’s students not only have the opportunity to employ their knowledge and skills through hands-on training – in this case, organizing school fundraising events – many of them also partake in practicum placements where they can acquire real-world experience prior to graduation.
In such a hands-on, fast-paced field, it’s important for students to gain a competitive edge. Event planning and management requires a keen eye and even better organization. CDI College’s Event Management program will enable students to build on their natural talent for pulling together a successful event and become adept in dealing with finances, human resources, contracts, negotiations, and everything else a professional event manager needs to master.
