Montreal - Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Students and staff at Royal Vale School in N.D.G. once again honoured the late Alex Porter-Rozmovits with their annual Dance for Alex on December 5.

Alex was a bright, loving and thriving six-year-old kindergarten student who died suddenly on June 22, 2009 of a rare bacterial infection. The school has held a morning dance in his honour every December since 2010.  His parents Peter and and Roberta and younger sister, who is a student at the school, were on hand.

Joining the students for this year’s dance was Tim Fleiszer, founder and Executive Director of Concussion Legacy Foundation Canada (CLFC) and a former CFL player. Fleiszer is the first player in CFL history to win four Grey Cup championships with four different teams. A graduate of Harvard University, Fleiszer played professional football for 10 years before retiring and beginning his work in youth athletics, with the CLFC and as a player agent.

Fleiszer was joined by Montreal Alouettes General Manager Kavis Reed, running back William Stanback, wide receiver Ernest Jackson and defensive lineman Jesse Joseph. Physical Education and Health teacher Norman Katz once again organized the event. He also invited three Dawson College cheerleaders, who helped get the dancing started.
