EA Outreach: Latest initiatives

EA Burnaby

 
SHOWING OUR SUPPORT -  Published 17/04/2013
 

The best way for the running community to show our solidarity and support for those who were hurt, and the family and friends of those who were killed in Boston, is to get out and do what we do best … run. Today, people all over North America are getting out to “Run for Boston”.  Here at EA Canada (Vancouver), we did a 5km lunch-time run to show our support and let those affected know that we care.

EA CAMPAIGNS FOR THE MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION - Published 28/02/2013
 

EA Outreach in Burnaby, B.C. recently launched a campaign to help raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of British Columbia & Yukon Canada. The team is hosting weekly events, like the chocolate buffet bar & fountain and root beer float fundraisers, and organizing a raffle to help raise money and awareness. One wish costs $6k, so they are hoping to raise $10K by mid-March.


On March 10th, EA Outreach will be holding the 11th annual EA Challenge. The EA Challenge is a huge event with media attachment (global and local news coverage) where 10 kids from MAW called “The Dream Team” compete against FIFA and NHL production staff and local sports celebrities in virtual hockey and soccer tournaments throughout the day. 

 

 
Anti-bullying campaign
 

On Wednesday, February 27th, EA Burnaby hosted the Pink Shirt Day in support of Anti-Bullying, a national campaign across Canada.


Employees purchased Pink shirts from reception and wore them all day in support of Anti-Bullying.  Proceeds from the sale of the shirts will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation BC & Yukon.
