“What is the essence of life? To serve others and do good.” – Aristotle
At Nose Creek we are committed to community involvement, whether it is keeping those in our community moving faster and feeling better, or lending our expertise and support to the many worthy causes and events that occur year round in Calgary.
One such cause that we are extremely proud to support this month is the Woman2Warrior Fundraiser and Charity Event, benefiting Easter Seals Alberta and the Children’s Hospital Aid Society (CHSA), occurring Saturday, May 27th at SAIT.
Woman2Warrior celebrates the warrior within the heart of each woman and uplifts all women who wish to participate to get out of their comfort zones and tackle the different obstacle courses. Of course, as the event is about encouragement and each woman finding the warrior within themselves, completing the entire course is not necessary and obstacles can be skipped.
Woman2Warrior Calgary describes the event and race as:
“a non-timed run covering about 4.5 km of trails and terrain. The course features obstacles to test your strength, agility, balance and sense of adventure. You may enter as an individual or as a team. Teams can raise money together in one large sum as long as when divided each individual has raised their minimum to participate. There will be awards and prizes for the top overall fundraisers and costumes. Recruit the support of friends, family and coworkers to help reach your fundraising goal. By participating in Woman2Warrior Calgary, you’ll be helping kids with disabilities and medical conditions by supporting Easter Seals Alberta and the Children’s Hospital Aid Society.”
Special Message from Blair Schachterle on Community Involvement:
I like to support and get involved in events that make our community a better place to live. I have a soft spot for any charity fundraiser that has a health component in it. The Woman2Warrior is special to our team, because it helps two great charities. As a Physiotherapist and father of two children, I can relate to these two great organizations and their mission to assist with disabilities and children.
The Easter Seals is committed to helping children and their families overcome the challenges of a physical disability or special need. By providing families with necessary mobility equipment, we can help ensure they live a better life. Money raised will also help send over 1,200 children, youth and adults with a physical disability or special need to Easter Seals Camp Horizon, where they enjoy a unique summer camp experience and succeed in ways they never imagined possible.
Children’s Hospital Aid Society (CHAS) is a volunteer-based charitable organization of 75 women that has been raising funds in Calgary since 1908. CHAS funds programs, services and research projects for the Alberta Children’s Hospital and hosts an annual Easter Party for children and their families at the hospital. CHAS also supports community agencies that are working to positively impact the lives of children. In the last 17 years alone, CHAS has raised over $5 million to fulfill its mandate to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young adults in Calgary through Caring, Helping, Assisting and Serving.
Come out and join us on Saturday May 27th! Please register and get involved in this great event, get some exercise on the obstacle course, have some FUN and support two great causes.
See you soon!
