As Airdrie prepares for the #StrazStrong benefit concert on June 16th, we look at the initiative that's taken Airdrie and the world by storm. 

One of the first creations of the #StrazStrong campaign came when hats featuring Ryan's number 10 were made to show support and raise funds for his recovery.

Since the hats came out in early April, thousands have been sold in Airdrie, Canada and even in Europe.

The love for the simple gesture has even amazed Sue Bissonette who along with her Husband Jason helped create the hats.

We had a chance to catch up with Sue to talk about the hats and how they've grown to help Ryan Straschnitzki and put Airdrie on the map.
