On Thursday, September 24, 2020 participants teed off at Cottonwood Golf & Country Club to participate in the first annual Golf for Pacekids presented by BD&P.
Thanks to the generous support of Cottonwood and BD&P, Pacekids was able to safely host 63 participants on a beautiful Fall morning to raise critical funding for Pacekids’ Early Childhood Services program. Pacekids provides centre-based preschool and kindergarten programs for children aged 2.8 years to 6 years that can be accessed through PUF or mild/moderate funding. Pacekids offers an ECS Program & Speech-Language Enhancement (SLE) ECS program, which include a multi-disciplinary team of on-site therapists.
The tournament saw Pacekids supporters, families and community members come together to raise nearly $12,000 for Pacekids!

“We are truly grateful to have been provided with this opportunity to raise funds and awareness for Pacekids. In these unprecedented times, we find hope in knowing that we have tremendous community partners and supporters behind us and know that we will get through this, together.” says Alex Reed, Executive Director at Pacekids.
Proceeds from Golf for Pacekids will provide critical early intervention programming and therapies for Calgary children with special needs.
