Not Just Another Walk In the Park Fundraiser

Not Just A Walk in the Park

September 2018 marked the 11th year of Excel Homes' Not Just Another Walk in the Park. This year was their biggest event yet, with more than 150 participants, including employees, trades, suppliers and their families. Together participants walked or ran a 5km or 10km loop around the Bow River in Bowness Park in support of Hospice Calgary. 

"Every year, the Excel Homes staff walk or run to support Calgary families facing the loss of a loved one through Hospice Calgary's Child and Family Grief Services. In the last 11 years, we have raised over $350,000 for Hospice Calgary. Excel Homes is proud to match every dollar raised by employees through the pledges they receive." - Lance Floer, President Excel Homes. 

Thank you for your ongoing dedication and support of our mission!

Birdies for Kids

Birdies for Kids

We were very honoured to be a part of the Birdies for Kids program again this year. 

Birdies for Kids is a fundraising program designed to give Calgary charities an opportunity to generate contributions through flat donations or based on the number of "birdies" made by Champions Tour players during the annual Shaw Charity Classic. Participating charities, like Hospice Calgary, receives 100% of EVERY DONATION collected on their behalf and, through their matching program, receives extra funding of up to 50% of collected donations.

Thank you to everyone for donating!
