In the past 7 days I’ve…
Celebrated the success of this year’s Shaw Charity Classic.
In a challenging economy the Shaw Charity Classic raised over $5.2 million for youth charities in Alberta. This was Two Wheel View’s first year as a part of this fundraising event and we look forward to making an even bigger splash in 2017. Interested in helping us out?

Witnessed incredible speakers at Rotary’s Make Dreams Real event.
This event shares the stories of the different programs and organizations that the Rotary Clubs of District 5360 puts their time, talent and funding towards. Two of our trip participants in 2016 were supported by the Rotary Club of Calgary- Heritage Park.
Connected with fellow non-profit organizations at The Calgary Foundation’s Vital City.
A highlight of our calendar every year, The Calgary Foundation brings together so many organizations, leaders and community builders to celebrate the impact we are all having on the city of Calgary and beyond. We are grateful to them not only for financially supporting some of our programs including our Full Cycle – First Nations Bike programs but believing in our way of making a difference in the community.
Danced my butt off at WE Day Alberta… for the fifth time!
WE Day is a movement. It brings to together youth from all over Alberta to celebrate the contributions they’ve made to making our province and world a better place to live. Each year they have incredible speakers (Chris Hadfield and Rick Hansen this year to name a few!), talented musicians and local changemakers to inspire and empower youth to make a difference. It’s hard not to leave this event feeling hopeful for the future!
Hosted TWV Team Night at the office.
Once a month we host a TWV Team Night at our office. This is a chance for staff and others in our office building to catch up, connect and build community. Last night we enjoyed soup from a small local company Lovin’ Ladles. We LOVE to support local business as much as we can!
Spent an evening with Alberta’s Lieutenant Governor and watched inspiring youth earn their Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
Technically this one is still to come (tomorrow!) but it is definitely going to be a career highlight. At least one of our past participants will receive his Silver Award tomorrow night. It’s pretty awesome to be a small part of that achievement. This might be my first Silver ceremony but I’m pretty sure it won’t be my last!
My heart is full.
