Rescue in the rockies

Rescue in the Rockies is the flagship fundraising event for STARS in Alberta and with the generous support of colleagues, businesses, friends and family, our participants have helped to bring several millions of dollars to support the work of STARS. 

The Challenge

Each participant is challenged to raise $100,000 in order to be rescued and returned to civilization. The participants are equipped with a cell phone and have access to friends and family for morale support in the form of donations.  

On June 15, 2018, a group of brave community leaders will trade in their business attire for flight suits, and climb onboard the STARS air ambulance helicopter for a unique mission. Each participant will compete to raise as much money as possible to earn a flight back to civilization, using the only tool they’ll have – their cell phones.

The intrepid participants will undertake a variety of challenges in the rockies to help secure their escape.

More than $4,800,000 has been raised during the past Rescue in the Rockies to fund much needed services provided by STARS air ambulance.
