KAR: Regional Community Champs

Cancer Society acknowledges Kimberley Alpine Resort for their support

Mia Gardiner from the Canadian Cancer Society congratulates Ted Funston from the Kimberley Alpine Resort for the exceptional support for the Cancer Society. Joining them are Liana and Dona from the Slopes for Hope event.

Last Thursday, Mia Gardiner, Coordinator of Volunteer Engagement for the Canadian Society visited the Kimberley Alpine Resort to express the Cancer Society’s appreciation for supporting their efforts.

KAR received the Regional Community Champion Award recognizing excellence in corporate and community partners, in community fundraising and program delivery at the regional level.

Kimberley Alpine Resort was a long time sponsor for the Relay for Life event, as well as founding partner, host and driving force behind the Slopes for Hope. Slopes for Hope was born in Kimberley as a replacement for the Relay for Life, and involves a day of skiing the vertical length of Mount Everest and raising funds for cancer research.

There will be a Slopes for hope event again in 2014. See more in a future edition of the Bulletin.

“The Resort embraces prevention, and promotes the benefits of an active, healthy lifestyle, as well as family values — hosting many activities throughout the year that embrace these values,” Gardiner said. “The Kimberley Alpine Resort is a true community champion, embracing the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society in generous ways over the past several years. The Society is grateful and appreciative of this ongoing commitment.”
