“Run for Rocky” fundraiser, commemorating Rockwell Campana.A team from the University of Windsor invites support for the “Run for Rocky” fundraiser, commemorating Rockwell Campana.

Team proud to run in support of gay-straight alliances

A team representing the University of Windsor in a charity run this weekend seeks students, staff, and faculty who want to join the cause.

The “Run for Rocky” raises funds for Gay-Straight Alliances in local high schools and programming of the Windsor Pride Community, Resource and Education Centre. The event commemorates Rockwell Campana, who died in August 2012 at 23 years of age.

At 11 a.m. Sunday, April 9, participants will gather in Dieppe Park, including political science student Amanda Emery and her colleagues from the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility.

“We encourage people to walk, run, or roll in this event — either individually or as part of our University of Windsor team,” she says. “Anyone who can’t attend can participate through a financial donation.”
