• SECURE Raises $315,000 for KidSport and Providence

    On July 12th, 2017, SECURE hosted its second Charity Stampede Party in support of kids. At SECURE, we have always had a strong commitment to helping our communities and neighbours. We brought together our friends, clients, colleagues, and industry partners to help raise money for charities in our province. This year, we broke our own record and raised $315,000 for two charities; KidSport and Providence. Corporate sponsors raised $200,000 for KidSport, while $115,000 was raised through charitable donations leading up to the event and at the door. Friends of SECURE, Kevin and Trina Olson, and Kyklopes Capital Management, generously opened their wallets and matched all donations made to Providence.

    The iconic Canadian band, 54-40 rocked out for 700 attendees at the event, making it a truly memorable afternoon. Thank you to all of our sponsors and guests who attended SECURE's 2017 Charity Stampede Party and helped raise $315,000 for KidSport and Providence.

    KidSport believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sport. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport. KidSport is a national non-profit organization that provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

    Providence believes every child deserves a chance to reach for and achieve their full potential. Providence's 6 locations throughout Calgary continue to provide therapy and support to children from 12 months to 6 years of age with any type of disability (including those with speech and language delays, down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, genetic conditions, deafness, blindness and those who are medically fragile). The school program is based on a learning-through-play philisophy that allows the child to learn in a safe and fun environment. Certified teachers along with a team of therapists and educational assistants provide direct individualized treatment in the classroom.



    For the fourth year running, SECURE participated in the Kids Radiothon for the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation. The Alberta Children’s Hospital is near and dear to many at SECURE having had first hand experiences using the valuable resources of the hospital. As a result, every year SECURE actively raises money for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation through the Caring for Kids Radiothon and through an annual memorial golf tournament. Since 2011, SECURE has donated over $160,000 to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation through these events. This year, SECURE and its employees generously donated $52,562.
