Building Community Through Service

This year marks the 20th year that RE/MAX Fort McMurray has been generously donating to the Northern Lights Health Foundation. In that time, the dynamic real estate team supported the purchase of life-saving equipment and technology such as the CT Scanner and portable Ultra-Sounds. They also sponsored, attended, and purchased auction items at the Health Foundation signature events.  

In 2016, RE/MAX Fort McMurray stepped forward as a $250,000 donor to the Gratitude Campaign Palliative Care Suites project. This project is absolutely vital to provide family-friendly end of life settings for loved ones. Currently the hospital has two patient rooms designated for palliative care and under the Gratitude Campaign an entire new section of the medicine floor will be assigned to create a minimum of three family suites (with private area for the patient) and a private lounge. Design and planning work is underway and one of the suites will be named in honour of RE/MAX Fort McMurray.  

Over the years, the RE/MAX team launched two fabulous events and directed the proceeds to the Health Foundation. These two events, the annual RE/MAX Golf Tournament and the “Jersey off Their Back” game worn Oil Barons hockey jersey silent and live auction, have seen tremendous interest from the community and offer the realty team a chance to show their pride in their work and celebrate with neighbors and clients.  

The annual RE/MAX Golf Tournament is highly anticipated and sells out quickly with a field of 144 players having a great time and raising funds for the Health Foundation. This year marks the 11th year of the tournament and we can’t wait to be part of the fun!  

These gifts and donations allow community members to access health care services and equipment right here in our region and this in turns attracts newcomers to the area.   

Katie Ekroth, Managing Broker with RE/MAX, tell us, “We live here, work here, play here and unfortunately some of us will be sick here. When that day comes we want to know that we have the best medical technology and staff possible. The Health Foundation works to fund many of our region’s health care needs that aren’t covered through government funding. As members of this community we take care of our own and by supporting the Health Foundation we’re helping to do that.”  

Thanks RE/MAX for all you do to support the Health Foundation!
