In 2016, our Centennial Year, JMH & Co. launched our Rise-Up Grant program. This grant provides the opportunity for entrepreneurs to build up their company, our communities and the programs within it and help entrepreneurs become stronger in their trade.
Our first recipient of the Rise-Up Grant in 2016 was Red Rock Union. This group is led by Chris Humphries, Dana Gackle & Jordan Scherer, three individuals who started to organize races multiple times each year in Southeastern Alberta in 2012. The races get people off the couch, but also raise money to support wellness in the community by giving back a percentage of their profits to charities such as the YMCA and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
This weekend Red Rock Union will host their first 2017 event, Conquer the Coulee. Last year, Conquer the Coulee, saw over 500 participants Join the Union in Kin Coulee. The organizers strive to find new ways to challenge participants every year whether it is a new water hazard(s), challenging obstacles, or a difficult coulee to conquer.
Our team at JMH is happy to participate both as competitors and volunteers at the Red Rock Union races. Register for Conquer the Coulee by visiting www.redrockunion.ca.
Rise-Up to the challenge and Join the Union.
