The 2014 Alberta Winter Games has just received the best Christmas present it could have wished for.
Tonight, TRITECH Group presented a cheque for $50,000 to Bob Ellard the chair of the 2014 Alberta Winter Games. Rodger Laking the Operations Manager for the company says TRITECH has been doing a significant amount of work in the Bow Valley and we are part of the community, so we wanted to participate in this major event.
TRITECH has been instrumental in building infrastructure that provides clean water in both Canmore and Banff.
Bob Ellard says, “this is the largest donation the host society has received to date and it will go a long way in helping us to reach our goals”.
The overall budget for the games is $1.6 million dollars.
In just a little over a month the games will begin in both Canmore and Banff from Feb. 6-9th, 2014.
This multi-sport event will bring close to 2,500 athletes (ages 11 – 17), coaches and officials to the Bow Valley.
They will participate in 19 sports. The Games provide an opportunity for many of Canada’s future elite athletes to enjoy their first taste of competition at a provincial level. They also enable visitors and residents to experience the local culture through a variety of performing and visual arts events and activities.
