Join us in supporting Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta’s 1st annual Ride-Through-the-Rockies!
The Ride-Through-the-Rockies is an approximate 375 km bicycle ride from Cochrane to Lake Louise and back from Kananaskis.
Star Building Materials is proud to sponsor the Habitat for Humanity Ride Through the Rockies. This is a new effort to raise funds to assist Habitat in building safe, decent and affordable houses for families in need. In this, the first year, we are committed to raising funds to assist in the building of affordable housing and promoting homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. Together with your support and financial contribution we can make this possible.
All donations are tax deductible and any contribution would be greatly appreciated. It is also important to note that none of the money raised goes towards the bike ride or to Habitat’s administration cost. All of the money raised will help to build a home for a deserving family.
To register or for more information, please contact Ken Crockett by email.
