As a locally family owned and operated company, the Parkwood Group of Companies is proud to have been building in the Edmonton region for almost 30 years. With the generous assistance and support of our trades, employees and business associates we are delighted to have completed our fourth Benefit House with all proceeds going towards the University Hospital Foundation Brain Trust Campaign, Kids with Cancer & JDRF.
We look forward to continually supporting these amazing causes!
University of Alberta Hospital's Brain Trust Campaign
The Parkwood Group of Companies has committed $250,000 towards the University of Alberta Hospital’s Brain Trust Campaign. The campaign is focused on raising funds to purchase leading-edge technology for Neurosurgery and Neuroscience programs. These programs will help provide the latest diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of brain conditions including stroke, brain tumours, aneurysms, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. So far the funds raised have contributed to the Intra-Operative MRI Suite, which provide surgeons remarkably clear images without having to move the patient out of an operating room, and Gamma Knife, a revolutionary, and noninvasive, treatment for life threatening growths and malformations on the brain.
Kids with Cancer Society
For over 30 years the Kids with Cancer Society has provided vital services to children with cancer and their families. From the time of diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond, the Society provides more programs than all other Northern Alberta charities combined. Parkwood is proud to donate $125,000 of the proceeds from the Parkwood Benefit Houses.
The help doesn’t stop there. Parkwood’s employees and trades have graciously donated their time and resources to help maintain the Kids with Cancer Society House. The house offers a home-like environment for families to relax in and access to support programs.
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)
The Parkwood Group of Companies has committed to donate $125,000 from the Parkwood Benefit House over the next 5 years to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The mission is simple, to cure diabetes and its complications. JDRF has become the leading non-profit, non-governmental funder of diabetes research in Canada and an international research powerhouse.
The Parkwood employees have generously given their time to this foundation by entering teams in the “Walk to Cure Diabetes” and volunteering for the “Revolution Ride to Defeat Diabetes”.
