Shane Homes has always understood that community wellness is essential in building today’s lives, that’s why its recent $3.5 million investment in the new City of Calgary recreation facility in the northwest is considered money well spent.

Rocky Ridge YMCA currently under construction will be named “Shane Homes YMCA” in honour of Shane Homes’ donation, the largest donation the YMCA has received in its 115-year history.

Shane Wenzel, President of Shane Homes says the company strongly supports organizations that promote health, wellness and education, and which help change peoples’ lives for the better. “YMCA Calgary is a perfect choice to invest our support to help Calgarians thrive in a safe, active and welcoming environment.”

The YMCA says it is thrilled by the generosity of Shane Homes and welcomes the partnership. “The Shane Homes team has really stepped up to help YMCA to ensure more Calgarians belong, grow, thrive and lead in this amazing new facility,” says Shannon Doram, President and CEO of YMCA Calgary.

The money will be invested directly into the 284,000-square-foot facility — which will hold an NHL-size multipurpose rink and more.
