    For the past two years, Vista has proudly supported Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta (KCCF), a Calgary-based charitable organization that helps families fighting childhood cancer in Alberta. Their programs are uniquely designed to meet the needs of the whole family at each stage of the cancer journey, from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.

    KCCF helps Alberta children and families by providing funding and programs in four key areas: Camp, Outreach, Research, Hospital Programs & Scholarships. Over the last two years, Vista’s fundraising efforts have gone towards improving Camp Kindle, KCCF’s summer camp that hosts programs designed for children and families battling cancer. The programs run at Camp Kindle are free to attend. You can learn about KCCF’s summer camp initiatives here.

    Vista's 2013 KCCF fundraising efforts went towards a trail rider and other improvements to make Camp Kindle more accessible to campers with limited mobility.

    In August, a few Vista staff members got to experience a real treat by visiting Camp Kindle. The visit featured a guided tour of camp facilities, a chance to meet some of the dedicated staff and councilors, as well as a front row seat to the weekly Super Skills presentation put on by the campers. Afterwards, our visiting staff had the privilege of sharing a BBQ lunch with the campers and even got to help serve the ice cream.
