2015 a record-setting year for Teddy for a Toonie.
ATB Financial set a one million dollar goal for the 2015 Teddy for a Toonie campaign. We may have missed that mark, but we sure aren't ashamed of the $928,000 total from our annual province-wide fundraising campaign that supports the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation in Calgary and the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation in Edmonton.
Where did the cash come from? This year ATB team members organized and participated in a dodgeball tournament, a bed race, kick boxing classes, a princess meet and greet, a super hero meet and greet, pancake breakfasts, a dance, bottle drives, golf tournaments, jail and bail events, and more.
We want to thank our team members for their efforts and our customers for their generosity during the month of May. Your contributions are resulting in a $588,000 cash injection for operating room redevelopment at the Stollery and $340,000 to support Neuro-Critical Care at the Alberta Children's Hospital.
With the 2015 total included, ATB Financial has now raised over $7.6 million through Teddy for a Toonie. Those millions have helped our children's hospitals develop innovative rehabilitation programs and acquire state-of-the-art equipment that saves young lives every day.
