World Financial Group’s (WFG) financial professionals are committed to helping individuals and families reach their financial goals and dreams. For professionals in Canada, helping individuals and families is taken to a whole new level through community service.
Chad Thompson, a WFG Marketing Director of Calgary and Jarek Chin, a Senior Marketing Director of Edmonton joined forces to plan the 2nd annual WFG Charity Hockey event at the Father David Bauer Olympic Arena in March. Each year, office teams raise money for a specific charity, from January-March annually, with the hockey event set as the campaign’s finale. A different charity is chosen each year by the winning hockey team from the previous year. This year’s charity of choice was Breast Cancer Research.
For Chad, he knew Breast Cancer Research would be the perfect charity to help since his mother suffers with the disease. “ I’ve never done anything like this before. It’s amazing! With my mom having the disease [breast cancer], this initiative definitely hit home for me. If I wasn’t an MD with WFG, I would choose this as a full-time career. There is a lot of work involved to plan an event like this, similar to a full-time job, but it’s worth it! ”
The event raised a total of $6,194 to date, and counting.
