Bow Valley Credit Union is pleased to announce that for being a corporate sponsor and assisting in the Rocky Mountain Hockey Challenge, hosed by MP Blake Richards, that we were recognized this month with a $10,000 grant from Concentra Financial, as part of its’ emPOWERING Your Communities campaign.
The charity event was selected by Concentra from a pool of over 70 initiatives across Canada, as local project championed by a credit union that embodied credit union values and demonstrated leadership within the community.
Held annually since 2008, the annually held Rocky Mountain Hockey Challenge has raised over $280,000 for victims’ services groups through the Bow Valley including Banff, Canmore, Cochrane, and Airdrie.
Richards has said that Bow Valley Credit Union has been a key to their success. “I’m incredibly honoured to have had the opportunity to raise critically needed funds for Victims Services in my riding,” said Richards. “I am especially thankful to Larry Bohn and the Bow Valley Credit Union for their long standing support of our initiative.”
“We’ve been a proud partner with Blake in supporting Victims’ Services for six years now,” said Larry Bohn, President and CEO of the Bow Valley Credit Union. “I’m very excited to receive this national recognition and look forward to continuing our contribution to this important cause.”
This year’s charity event in support of Victims Services has been tentatively planned for the second week of September.
