Ditch Hitch Supports CEO Rescue in the Rockies for STARS Fund Raiser
The Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS) have announced another successful fundraising event. CEO Rescue in the Rockies for STARS raised a staggering $975,000 in one day. For the fourth year, STARS partnered with five prominent Calgary-based CEOs and dropped them into Kananaskis Country, near Bragg Creek via helicopter. Using only their cell phones to collect donations, the CEOs had no choice but to “dial” for their survival by remaining on the mountain until they raised a goal of $100,000 each, at which point they were “rescued” by STARS Air Ambulance.
