Mayor Fougere leads Cheer for Heroes Weekly celebration to take place every Friday
Starting Friday, May 1, at 7 p.m., Regina residents will have the opportunity to participate in a weekly City-wide recognition event honouring front-line workers without leaving their homes.
Building on previous events, this Cheer for Heroes asks residents to congregate on their front steps, front yards, porches, and balconies and let the people working to keep our city safe and healthy know that we support them. This is done by cheering, playing instruments, and making as much noise as creatively as possible for five full minutes.
“Many shift workers, like police officers and nurses, change shifts at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day,” said Mayor Fougere. “It is often stressful work, especially at this time of uncertainty and anxiety. This is a chance for the rest of us to make some noise and let them know that their work is important and we thank them for their selfless efforts during this difficult time.”
The health and safety of our community remains the top priority for the City of Regina. We encourage people to maintain physical distancing during these events. The City continues to work closely with Public Health officials to ensure we are following proper health protocols. Visit Regina.ca/covid19 for updates to City services and programs.
