AirSprint Private Aviation is pleased to announce its support of the Alberta Cancer Foundation's Enbridge Tour Alberta for Cancer, demonstrating its commitment to the community and making life better for many Albertans whose lives have been affected by cancer.
"We are excited to be a part of this life-changing event," says James Elian, President & CEO of AirSprint. "Cancer touches all our lives in one way or another, but we can make a difference by supporting incredible causes like the Enbridge Tour Alberta for Cancer. We all have a reason to be here and support cancer research and care in Alberta." From July 22-23, 2023, more than 1,800 cyclists will gather at the start line of Alberta's largest cycling fundraiser to tour beautiful southern Alberta and celebrate its 15th milestone year. That is 15 years of community building, 15 years of memories, and 15 years of impacting cancer research and care across Alberta. The tour is a two-day event for all Albertans to honour those facing cancer—our loved ones, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Whether riding as an individual, as part of a corporate or community team or participating as a volunteer, there is a place for everyone to make an impact.
"We're looking forward to bringing this incredible community together again to celebrate tremendous efforts in reaching this year's start line," said Wendy Beauchesne, CEO of the Alberta Cancer Foundation. "We know that it takes a village to make a real impact, so we are grateful for every rider, donor and partner, including Team AirSprint, who has dedicated their time and resources to making a difference for over 23,000 Albertans who will hear the words, 'You have cancer,' this year alone."
AirSprint is excited to be putting forward its largest team yet, with 12 riders (and 10 crew members) ready to peddle hard for the battle against cancer. Team AirSprint would not be possible without the generous support from its official – 2023 - corporate sponsors: Bellwood Global Transportation, Honeywell Aerospace, AXIS Insurance, Cessna + Beechcraft by Textron Aviation, World Fuel Services, and GoGo Business Aviation. AirSprint is proud to be supporting local causes that align with its community values and support Canadians.
Team AirSprint's fundraising efforts put the Enbridge Tour Alberta for Cancer one step closer to reaching its $5 million fundraising goal. All donations from the tour will go towards the Alberta Cancer Foundation supporting local cancer research, including ground-breaking clinical trials, enhanced patient support programs, and all 17 cancer centres across Alberta.
