It was another great year for the annual Support The Cause event put on by Western Communities Foundation.

Held on the last Wednesday of May each year, Support The Cause is an annual fundraising event that encourages Western Financial Group employees to walk together for 5km in their local communities to raise money for various local charities and community initiatives.

Linda Holmes, branch manager for the High River location, said "We have a great group here. We raised well over $2,000 from our bake sale and then we had some other donations come in, so we definately reached our fundraising goal."

She added, "We have a couple of bursaries going to the high school this year as well as an infrastructure grant going over to Medicine Tree Manor for the redevelopment of a park they have there."
