Oilympics – Amazing Strong Kids Support!

A group of seven organizers that call themselves the Oilympics, put together a 10-day hockey tournament. With support from sponsors, the banquet and individuals, they raised money for charities in our community.  This year’s tournament was in March and YMCA Calgary Strong Kids was so fortunate to be chosen as one of the three charities to receive funds from this group.  The other charities were Huntington’s Society of Canada and CJAY92 Kids Fund (Secret Wish). An amazing $45,000 was donated to our Strong Kids Campaign to help more than 600 children & youth in our community to have a YMCA experience.  Here we are at the cheque presentation. We even brought Bobby who is a YMCA Strong Kid!

Thank you to Gerry Mumford and the Oilympics team for your belief in the great work we do for kids!
