Since 2007, WestJet and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada have partnered together to transform the experiences of young people and staff from Boys and Girls Clubs across the country. Through the donation of the gift of flight, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada and its member Clubs have been able to...
- offer opportunities for youth and staff to travel to training, activities and events.
- fundraise to support enriching programs and essential services that benefit young people, their families, and their communities.
WestJet is a proud sponsor of the national fundraising event Capital One® Race For Kids™, where grown-ups play and kids win! Race For Kids™ is an urban adventure race offering a chance to return to the best adventures of childhood, while raising funds for kids to receive the support they need to realize their true potential. In 2016, teams of four in 31 communities across Canada competed in a series of 10 checkpoint challenges designed to focus the mind and challenge the body.
Whether planning a holiday party, helping out with fundraising events or spending time with Club youth, WestJetters across Canada volunteer their time, energy and creativity with local Boys and Girls Clubs to help improve the lives of young people across the country.
