What better way to announce a new partnership than to send one of your VPs off a 30-storey building?
Craig Hampson, Vice President of our Calgary North Market, after his Easter Seals Drop Zone descent
ATB Financial is partnering with Easter Seals to support Camp Horizon, a specialized camp for children and adults with disabilities, located in Bragg Creek.
Cheered on by a sea of ATB associates in blue, Craig Hampson, Vice President of our Calgary North Market, rappelled down the Sun Life Tower as part of the Easter Seals Drop Zone to support Camp Horizon and help announce the partnership. ATB is also matching money that Craig raised through his fundraising page.
Through our support, already this summer Camp Horizon was able to offer a new mountain bike program for the campers and purchase two yurts (a type of Mongolian hut) for a new camping experience. A portion of the gift will also go towards two camper bedrooms and staff rooms within one of the two new, more accessible dormitories the camp is building over the next few years, and subsidizing fees to make camp affordable for campers with disabilities and special needs.
ATB is about making dreams come true, and Camp Horizon makes dreams come true every day for Albertans with disabilities, special needs, and serious illnesses.
