The buzz of the Calgary Stampede is once again in the air.
Over 10 days in July, people from all over gather together for the “Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”.
At SECURE, it’s time to dust off our boots and shine our belt buckles and gather together to raise crucial funds for our charity partners who provide support in our city, province and across the globe.
Giving back is at the core of SECURE’s values. From our beginning 15 years ago, we’ve demonstrated to our employees, customers and community partners that our organization is driven to make a difference; in their lives and the lives of those in the communities in which we operate.
The 2022 SECURE Annual Stampede Charity is just around the corner on July 13 and we are gearing up to host the most successful event to date! In 2021, this event raised over $505,000 with all proceeds going to directly to charities, and this year we are planning to raise that bar and exceed 2021’s funds raised.
The Charity Partners we are working with for this years’ event provide various vital resources and support to communities and people in need.
Have a look at the introductions to the five charities our event will support this year:
As sport returns, KidSport will play a crucial role in the mental and physical health recovery from COVID-19. Back to Sport is a project focused on just that, getting kids back to sport after the pandemic. As a long-time partner of our Stampede Charity Campaign SECURE is proud to support KidSport.
The conflict in Ukraine is having widespread and devastating humanitarian impacts. Millions have fled the country and millions more are internally displaced. Red Cross teams on the ground in Ukraine and surrounding countries are continuing to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance to those impacted. SECURE is proud to support the Canadian Red Cross and its efforts in Ukraine.
The Alex Community Health Centre serves the community with complex health needs, often the result of issues such as poverty, trauma, homelessness, or addiction. At The Alex, whole health is the goal – and you can’t be healthy if you are hungry, isolated or experiencing mental health struggles. As a community partner of SECURE, we are proud to support The Alex and its focus on holistic, wrap around care for those that need it most in our community.
Providence is a local learning institution that has a vision to provide every child in our community the opportunity to reach for and achieve their full potential. As a long- time partner in SECURE’s Stampede Charity Campaign, we are proud to support Providence and the wonderful work that they do in our community.
The Calgary Food Bank provides a vital foundation for Calgarians – food and meals for those that cannot afford this necessity. In Calgary, 47% of Calgary Food Bank clients are families with children. The Calgary Food Bank is the first line of emergency food support for families and individuals facing a crisis.
As excited as SECURE is to host this event, we understand that the success of the event has been, and will continue to be, because of our sponsors.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors this year!
All of us at SECURE along with our sponsors are thrilled to be able to provide support to our charity partners. Stay tuned for an announcement after the party when we reveal our grand total of funds raised!
