The RCMP and School Districts 50 and 52 have partnered to bring Lefty Williams’ inspirational “Dare 2 Dream” speaking tour to students in Prince Rupert, Queen Charlotte and Masset.

Lefty will be in Prince Rupert speaking with Prince Rupert Middle School and Charles Hayes Secondary School students and faculty on Monday, Nov. 24. Lefty enjoyed a seven year professional basketball career which included playing for the famous Harlem Globetrotters. He captivates the youth with his motivational speaking, mind-blowing basketball tricks and various prizes.

The RCMP’s Drugs and Organized Crime Awareness Service Section is committed, through partnerships such as this, to developing healthier and safer communities by reducing substance use and related problems. Through exposure to positive experiences such as the Lefty Williams’ “Dare 2 Dream” tour, our youth develop the skills they need to thrive and protect themselves from negative influences such as drug and alcohol use.
