For the past nine years the Tyson Parker Commitment to Life Society has hosted a Dinner and Auction fundraiser to support STARS Air Ambulance’s lifesaving mission to provide safe, rapid, highly specialized emergency medical transport to the critically ill and injured. Last year we hosted our first ever golf tournament, which was a great success.
The Tyson Parker Commitment to Life Society was created in 2007 by Tyson Parker, a STARS VIP (Very Important Patient) and his family and friends. It evolved into one of Leduc’s premier fundraising events and celebrates the community of Leduc making a difference in the lives of so many. From the 2016 fiscal year 1,814 missions were flown in Alberta from STARS’ three bases located in Edmonton, Calgary and Grande Prairie. Of those seven were from the City of Leduc. No patient flow will ever receive a bill for their flight. It is because of our community’s support that STARS is able to provide life-saving services to those who need it most. All funds raised through the Tyson Parker Commitment to Life Society will go directly towards supporting STARS.
