Corporate Teams – Benefits of Participating
Corporate Challenge and Team Building: Bring your team together with the common goal of supporting a good cause and encouraging inclusion at the same time. Promoting some healthy competition doesn’t hurt either. Encourage departments to form their own teams and compete for the honour of “Most Successful Fundraising Team” or “Best Team Spirit.”
Raise Corporate Visibility in the Community: Increase awareness of your company in Calgary and show that you value all of our communities’ citizens.
Make a Difference: The money you raise will support children and adults with disabilities whose participation in summer programs has a significant impact on their quality of life. The ripple effect of your support also benefits family, friends, educators, and the greater Calgary community in various ways.
