(London, Ontario) – Fanshawe's nationally ranked Women's and Men's Volleyball teams will be hosting the Conestoga Condors this Saturday, December 9 at the Glenn Johnston Athletic Centre. The #14 Women will play at 6pm, followed by the #5 Men at 8pm. The games were originally scheduled for January 10, 2018.

 

Both teams will be wearing green warm up t-shirts in support of Mental Health awareness, which will include the hashtags #Good2Talk and #YouDontSayCampaign. Good2Talk is a province-wide post-secondary initiative to get students talking about mental health and wellness. The Fanshawe You Don't Say Campaign is an initiative to attempt to minimize and eliminate the stigma attached to all stereotypes, including mental illnesses. The campaign aims to educate the community on reasons why certain words are offensive and unacceptable on Fanshawe's campus. At the front gate of Saturday's game, there will be informative materials provided by Fanshawe's Counselling and Accessibility Services Department and Good2Talk.
