Pacesetter had a unique opportunity to work with Beads of Courage Canada and help launch their program into Alberta Children’s Hospital. Beads of Courage is a non-profit organization that is currently in over 140 hospitals worldwide. Their Mission – Caring for children coping with serious illness, their families and clinicians by helping them to RECORD, TELL and OWN their story of COURAGE through beads.
The employees of Pacesetter took part in Exile Island, in efforts to raise money for the Children’s Wish Foundation. The Pacesetter team set a fundraising record for the event’s history in Alberta, having the most dollars ever raised by a single group. The Team was able to make more than 4 children’s wishes come true.
Pacesetter funds field trips, activities and programs at the CUPS One World Child Development Center. The One World Center is an early intervention education center that operates with the philosophy of providing nurturing, caring, educational environment to help low-income children and their families reach their full potential. It is through this “grass roots” program we feel we can make the biggest impact to change the lives of many children living in our Calgary community.
