Earlier this week a part of our very own Sure Systems team was lucky enough to have the opportunity to join some of Ingram Mircro’s Venture Tech Network (VTN) – Wild West chapter members in touring around the Southern Alberta Ronald McDonald House. We were honored to be able to see first hand how Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home away from home for families who aren’t from Calgary, but whose children are receiving medical attention from Calgary Hospitals. It was touching to hear all of the stories of the children and families who have come to know the Ronald McDonald house as home over the years, especially since so many of us in the Wild West Chapter have been connected to the house on a personal level.
Earlier on in the year the Wild West VTN Chapter was privileged enough to participate in a competition amongst the different chapters, in which we had won, awarding our chapter with a $5,000 donation from Ingram Micro to give to a charity of our choice.
Believing strongly in what the Ronald McDonald House does & the immense amount of support that they provide to families within Western Canada, it was an easy decision for the entire chapter to agree upon.
On behalf of the Wild West Chapter we want to send a huge Thank You to everyone at the Ronald McDonald House Southern Alberta who opened up their home to us and shared a piece of their experiences with us. It was very touching & allowed us to experience first hand the great things that you all do on a daily basis. We also want to send a huge Thank You to Ingram Micro and the entire VTN team, as this opportunity wouldn’t have been possible without you.
See you all soon 🙂
