This weekend was the Royal Ottawa Hospital’s 100th anniversary. I have worked for them covering different events over the years.
On Saturday I covered all kinds of events at the hospital – from lectures to info kiosks to volunteers to ceremonies to the highlight of the day – an appearance by Ottawa Senator’s star Daniel Alfredsson.
Alfredsson is a star on the ice but he also shines brightly in how he gives to community. He helps bring awareness to the often “shush-ed” issues of mental health.
When I’ve worked events for the hospital I get a little choked up (really) seeing the good work being done and the difference the people at the hospital make.
While I was working Alfredsson was very approachable and down to earth. He’s a superstar – and I am not talking about hockey.
