The long snapper for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Jorgen Hus, brought raffle tickets and an anti-bullying message to the home of Canadian Red Cross supporters Monday.
Hus is an ambassador with the Red Cross’ Imagine No Bullying campaign.

He’s one of the Riders that travel around the province doing workshops with kids about bullying.
“A lot of it is … the prevention, teaching kids tools, when they see it, what to do,” Hus said.
For three-year-old Mackenzie Brown and her eight-year-old brother Jordan in Saskatoon, it was a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”
“It’s a thing you should keep for your entire life,” Jordan said.
Jordan, a flag football player, had the chance to work on his skills with the Red Cross ambassador.

“It’s the best part about playing. Game days are fun when you’ve got 30,000 plus fans screaming – that’s fun. But these are the moments you remember years down the road,” Hus said.
