Scott & Anne Oake
Scott Oake is best known for his work on “Hockey Night In Canada”. After losing his son Bruce to a drug overdose, Scott and his family are championing the cause of addiction recovery.
Determined to have their child’s life and death return something positive to this world, Scott, Anne and their son Darcy have set forth on the path of building a long term treatment facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba. “The Bruce Oake Recovery Centre – A Place For Recovery, Healing And A Foundation For Life” aims to fill a need for treatment without the wait or high costs that too often contribute to a devastating outcome.
The likelihood is very high that someone you know or someone in your family is struggling with a current addiction, or living with a history of addiction. Statistically, 13.5% of individuals in Manitoba have an addiction to alcohol or drugs, higher than the national average of 11%.
Seize this unique opportunity to hear of Scott and Anne’s journey as only they can share it, learn more about this news-worthy project and network with MCJA board members, event sponsors and attendees.
It will be a breakfast unlike any you’ve experienced!
