Raising funds for critical research

Mattamy Homes is proud to be the long-time presenting sponsor of the annual Batting Against Breast Cancer slo-pitch tournament event, hosted at the Chinook Winds Ball Diamonds in Mattamy's Windsong community in Airdrie, Alberta. 

 

Batting Against Breast Cancer has grown to include three different locations across Canada including Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg, raising funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in support of critical breast cancer research and awareness projects. Mattamy employees from the company’s Alberta Division play an active part in fundraising and participating, making the event a continued success. 

 

As the presenting sponsor, Mattamy has contributed $115,000 and an additional $32,000 of in-kind gifts to the cause. Employee teams also compete in the tournament, raising thousands of additional dollars.

 

Batting Against Breast Cancer has raised $975,000 over its 11 years, with Calgary's 2019 tournament contributing $66,000. Funds from the event enable the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to invest in critical research, advocacy programs and peer support programs.

 

"This was my second year participating in the tournament and it's something we all look forward to each year. It's a great way to get colleagues together in a casual setting while making a positive impact on our local community."

– Amanda Kemp, Marketing Specialist for Mattamy's Alberta Division
