Celebrating Success: The White Ribbon Project Build Event in Calgary

On Sunday, September 10th, the city of Calgary, witnessed a remarkable event that not only showcased the power of community but also contributed significantly to raising awareness about a crucial issue – lung cancer awareness. The White Ribbon Project Build Event, organized by Great West Radon, was a monumental success, and it wouldn't have been possible without the unwavering support of our incredible community, vendors, partners, friends, and family. Together we created conversation pieces surrounding the information on lung cancer. We listened to experts in the lung cancer field, survivors and their testimonies as well as Dream Center Woodshop employees sharing their journeys and how they contributed to this event.
