New Age Oilfield is a proud sponsor of this event year after year. With the help of our employees who volunteered with both Race Day organizing and Event Planning, we as a whole assisted in raising $650,000 through Charitable Donations and Corporate Sponsorships over the past two years.
" Racing for a Cure is an annual event that benefits the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Kids with Cancer Society in Edmonton, Alberta.
What is it? Well, do you have the need for speed? Have you always wanted to ride in an exotic car? If so, the Racing for a Cure event is where you need to be! Join us every year at the Castrol Raceway to experience a fast paced, thrilling ride around the track in one of many exotic vehicles ranging in value from over $300,000 to more than $2million.
Exotic Car Rides start at just $50 (for 2 laps) and all of the proceeds go towards helping kids through the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, Kids with Cancer Society.
These events are always a great success thanks to all of the sponsors, drivers, riders, volunteers, charities involved and organizers. We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you all for helping us year after year!
The kids that this money helps thank you from the bottom of their hearts."
In 2015, New Age Oilfield Services partnered with the Magic of Christmas charity to spread a little Christmas spirit to Calgary families in need. In partnership with a group of small businesses, New Age Oilfield Services helped raise $15,481.95 to buy toys and gifts for their toy drive, benefiting the charity. Our very own Mark Rhodenizer put on his Santa suit and helped the team raid the shelves of a Calgary Canadian Tire before piloting the New Age big rig to the Magic of Christmas warehouse to drop off the much-needed donations.
Watch the video below to see how New Age Oilfield Services helped brighten Christmas day for plenty of Calgarians.
