Calgary Corporate Challenge

Charity Challenge

Calgary Corporate Challenge provides fun, engaging team-building events throughout the year, highlighted by the annual Calgary Corporate Challenge September Games. The Charity Challenge component gives teams a series of opportunities to give and engage in meaningful ways so they can do good and be good (and also earn points in the standings). We are excited to be celebrating 17 years of being a Calgary Corporate Challenge Charity partner. Since 2005, more than $445,000 in food and funds has been raised by Calgary Corporate Challenge participants to help feed YYC.

VIRTUALLY BUILD 20 WEEKENDS AND MORE HAMPERS

Give Funds (1 point)

Calgary Corporate Challenge Charity Challenge - Give Goods - WAM  Hamper Items
A donation of $250 will support 20 elementary
school students in Calgary.

Food insecurity can have lasting and devastating effects, especially on younger populations. Chronic hunger leads to attention problems, poor grades, chronic health conditions, nutrient deficiencies, and even depression. Feeding students has a positive impact on their academics, social interactions, and health. The Weekends and More Program ensures that hunger is not a barrier to learning.

The estimated market value for 20 Weekend and More hampers is $250. Donate online by selecting the CCC Charity Challenge – Weekends And More Program Fund.
