On May 5th, CIBC employees came together to “Dodge For Kids” and successfully raised $15,000! This is an incredible result that will enable over 50 kids to enjoy the benefit of organized sport in the inaugural event. KidSport is very pleased to working closer with CIBC’s Community Investment Strategy. Together we are helping to nurture and educate Canada’s children and young adults so they can build a better future.

Thanks to our participants. The event’s success was a direct result of the tremendous efforts of the employees associated with 13 local CIBC banking centres & partners who collectively pledged, donated and organized individual fundraisers. These centres & partners include:

Commerce Place, Metrotown, Georgia & Burrard, Grandview & Renfrew, Commercial Banking, Brentwood, Garden City & Blundell, Kerrisdale, UBC, No. 1 & Oakridge, Three West Centre, Main & Pender

 

Thanks to our sponsors. Fundraising and pledging is a difficult task and we take great pride in rewarding our participants for their efforts. Our sponsors make that possible – thanks!

Granville Island Brewery, Domino’s Pizza Kingsway, Vancouver Whitecaps and Mount Pleasant Community Center.

 

Thanks to our volunteers. Another well executed event because of the efforts of our volunteers. Thanks for donating your time and the many weeks of planning leading up to it!
