The RBC team gathered in St. Marys this past Friday for a celebration to highlight RBC’s $100,000 donation towards the St. Marys Memorial Hospital Foundation’s “Someone I Know” campaign. Foundation chairman John McIntosh spoke on behalf of the campaign to thank the RBC team: “Thanks to your generosity, we announced the other night at our Gala that we are now at $4.8 million toward our campaign’s $5.0 million goal. Donations like yours raises our profile so much. We appreciate it very much and we want to say thank you and we’re delighted to be here and be part of the celebration that you are having today.”
Local Paralympic athlete Tyler McGregor took part in RBC’s community celebration last week. Tyler grew up playing hockey in the area and in 2014 won an Olympic Bronze Medal in Sledge Hockey in Sochi, Russia. Recently, the Assistant Captain played a leading role in Canada’s gold medal performance at the 2017 Sledge Hockey World Championships in South Korea, scoring twice in the 4-1 final game. RBC sponsors amateur sport, from grassroots programs in local communities to national sport associations and elite-level athletes. Since 1947, RBC has been Canada’s longest-standing supporter of the Canadian Olympic Team. RBC is also a premier sponsor of Hockey Canada.
