Shell Canada Volunteers Benefit Alberta Cyclists
The Alberta Bicycle Association is pleased to announce it has recently received $3000 from the Shell Canada Community Service Fund.
The funds have been awarded to recognize and support Sean Huggins-Chan, a Shell Canada employee. Sean Huggins-Chan regularly volunteers with the Alberta Bicycle Association as a race official. The funds will be used to purchase race number plates, says Kevin MacCuish, Alberta Bicycle Association Events Coordinator.
Shell believes that contributions of time, effort and caring to not-for-profit organizations benefit the entire community. Through the Community Service Fund, we recognize and support Shell people who give personal time to not-for-profit organizations on a regular, volunteer basis, says Gina Ockey, Shell Canada Public Affairs.
We have supported Shell volunteers through the Community Service Fund for over 30 years. In 2004, Shell Canada granted over $450,000 to nearly 320 not-for-profit organizations across Canada.
The Alberta Bicycle Association is the sport governing body for cycling in the province of Alberta. It is an affiliated federation of the Canadian Cycling Association (CCA) and International Cycling Union (UCI). The Alberta Bicycle Association sanctions cycling competition in all cycling disciplines and also works to promote cycling for both recreation and transportation.
