What do Canadians do when the ice is out? Hit the greens, of course! And some generous folks do that with an eye to supporting those whose lives have been turned upside down by work-related fatalities, life-altering injury or occupational disease. Recently, the Calgary Regional Safety Committee (CRSC) of the Alberta Construction Safety Association held its annual Golf Classic event at Springbank Links Golf Course in Calgary. Through fundraisers like a 50/50 draw and raffles, participants raised close to $9,000! Other golf events this summer have included Levitt-Safety’s annual golf tournament, raising $4000, and Grand River OHS, which held its second annual golf tournament and fundraiser in June. In another approach to “driving” support, the Lloydminster “Treads for Life” motorcycle run also raised funds to serve those affected by workplace tragedy. The charity event is in its third year.
Thank you to all for making a difference in so many peoples’ lives!
