STARS presents Mayor Bronconnier with a Red Ring For Life
Today, Mayor Dave Bronconnier was presented with a Red Ring For Life (RRFL) by STARS flight paramedic Mike Lamacchia.
The Red Ring For Life is part of STARS 25th anniversary campaign, with the goal of increasing awareness of STARS in a new generation of Albertans as well as to continue generating financial support for their life saving work.
The RRFL symbolizes the many hands involved in a life saving mission, a sense of community, and the continuation of support from one generation to the next.
Calgary was the first city in Alberta to have a base for the STARS Air Ambulance and as a city, has been an active supporter of STARS for 25 years. Over the course of those 25 years, STARS has made over 19,000 missions, which means that 1 in 10 Albertans has been or knows someone who has been flown by STARS.
