BComm students pair business with pride
Four Bachelor of Commerce and Entrepreneurial Management students are selling rainbow shoelaces to raise money for the You Can Play Project, a non-profit organization that works for equality, respect and safety of all athletes, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
The students chose this charity for their Venture Challenge project.
Here is an excerpt:
‘The four have set a goal of raising $1,000, and are encouraging not just individuals, but businesses, sports teams and community organizations to get involved as well by purchasing the bright, rainbow-coloured laces for $3.50 a pair.
‘The You Can Play project is a charity we all feel passionate about,’ Jadresko explained. ‘It’s something we’re all very close to.’
