Alberta Blue Cross

In its third year as a gold-level sponsor of the AMA Youth Run Club, Alberta Blue Cross is committed to supporting wellness promotion initiatives that reach young Albertans and encourage the early establishment of healthy living habits.

Through its ABC Benefits Corporation Foundation, Alberta Blue Cross supports the AMA Youth Run Club with a contribution of $25,000 per year, supplemented with an additional $5,000 (10 prize draws of $500) per year as a school participation incentive promotion.

Alberta Blue Cross supports the Youth Run Club’s mission to provide Alberta children and youth with a free, inclusive, school-based program that encourages and facilitates running and physical activity. They also value the involvement of physicians, residents and medical students as YRC CHAMPions, providing healthcare leadership and advocacy in schools through the delivery of health presentations and other direct involvement with run clubs.

MD Financial Management is a wealth management firm dedicated exclusively to the financial well-being of Canadian physicians and their families, providing comprehensive financial planning, advice and solutions specific to physicians’ needs at every stage of their career, from medical school to practice and through retirement.

With their support of the AMA Youth Run Club, MD Financial Management demonstrates their respect for physicians and the valuable role they play in their communities.
