Scotiabank gives $180,000 to build a much needed sport pad at the South Health Campus YMCA that will benefit Calgary’s children and youth. With your help, Scotiabank will give more!

On April 11, 2016 hockey Olympians Cassie Campbell-Pascall and Kelly Bechard challenged YMCA youth in the inaugural hockey game on the new sport pad at South Health Campus YMCA. Scotiabank and Calgary Flames mascots were also there at game time.

Scotiabank has partnered with YMCA Calgary to build a much-needed sport pad at the YMCA’s Alberta Health Services South Health Campus. The sport pad will provide an outdoor space for young people to stay healthy, develop physical literacy skills, enjoy the comradery of sport and learn essential life skill of teamwork. This donation will go to the Scotiabank Youth Leadership and Recreation Fund, which the YMCA will use to expand and develop child and youth programming and fund program participation through YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign.

Used for hockey, badminton, soccer, basketball and more, the sports pad will be shared by the South Health Campus YMCA, Alberta Health Services and Calgary Health Trust. All three organizations, and the work they do in the community, will benefit from the addition of the sports pad to the health facility.

A big step in building a healthy youth culture and positive generation of leaders.

Scotiabank is generously pledging up to an additional $70,000, donating an extra $5 for every video share, favourite or retweet through their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
