Ride-Through-The-Rockies

September 25 to 28, 2014


 

Join us in supporting Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta’s 1st annual Ride-Through-the-Rockies!

The Ride-Through-the-Rockies is an approximate 375 km bicycle ride from Cochrane to Lake Louise and back from Kananaskis.


Star Building Materials is proud to sponsor the Habitat for Humanity Ride Through the Rockies.  This is a new effort to raise funds to assist Habitat in building safe, decent and affordable houses for families in need.  In this, the first year, we are committed to raising funds to assist in the building of affordable housing and promoting homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.  Together with your support and financial contribution we can make this possible.
 

All donations are tax deductible and any contribution would be greatly appreciated.  It is also important to note that none of the money raised goes towards the bike ride or to Habitat’s administration cost.  All of the money raised will help to build a home for a deserving family.
 

To register or for more information, please contact Ken Crockett by email.

Our Volunteers

We would like to thank our volunteers for their continued dedication and support. They give their time in many ways on the construction sites, at our ReStores, and at special events. The effects of their kindness are far-reaching. 

Here is a video of two of our volunteers at our Montgomery Build site on why they volunteer with us:

The ReNewal Program is an initiative designed to assist with repairs to homes damaged by the flooding in Calgary, High River and surrounding areas. It helps homeowners who have been impacted by disaster to meet basic home repair needs and helps return families to their homes with dignity and pride.
