The Cash Store recognizes the importance of being a part of the communities in which we operate. We strive to give back to our communities and do our part to help improve the lives of Canadians from coast to coast.
Alberta Diabetes Foundation
Diabetes is a debilitating condition that currently affects millions of Canadians, the number of which grows every day. The Cash Store is thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by diabetes and to finding a cure.
We are a proud partner of the Alberta Diabetes Foundation. Serving as the fundraising arm of the Alberta Diabetes Institute —a Canadian Centre of Excellence and a globally recognized research institute—the Alberta Diabetes Foundation supports groundbreaking diabetes research to help improve awareness, treatment and prevention of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. We have pledged to raise $7.5 million in support of the Alberta Diabetes Foundation.
The Freedom Run
In addition to our work with the Alberta Diabetes Foundation, The Cash Store has also been privileged to have had the opportunity to create a national community-based fundraising program—the Cash Store Financial Freedom Run for Diabetes Research.
After starting in 2009 in nine communities, the annual Freedom Run has since grown to include over 30 runs in Canadian communities from coast to coast. The run is an opportunity for families and friends to spend time together while raising essential funds in support of the Alberta Diabetes Foundation.
