Skipping the calories for a good cause

DIRTT is proud to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Alberta. This organization provides a “home away from home” for families travelling to Calgary for their children’s medical treatment. Located across from the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary, the house offers 24 private suites and communal areas where families going through similar experiences can come together to support one another.

For the past few years, DIRTTbags and ICEcubes in Calgary have been lucky enough to enjoy a Big Mac on McHappy Day, the annual charity event put on by McDonald’s. Historically, DIRTT has bought 500 Big Macs, with McDonald’s donating $1 per burger to the Ronald McDonald House. As much as we enjoyed our “golden arches” treats in the past, this year we decided to skip the calories and make a much bigger impact. DIRTT donated $3,000 directly to the Ronald McDonald House.
