Charity Golf Tournament

Coming Together as a Community

We are thrilled to announce that our first annual Drive for Distress Charity Golf Tournament was a huge success! On Tuesday, June 13, 2023, we welcomed participants, volunteers, and sponsors to a fantastic day of golfing, networking, and fundraising. Thanks to your support, we were able to raise essential funds to support the mental wellness of Calgarians.

With your generosity, we can continue to assist the thousands of crisis contacts we receive each year and create a healthier Calgary and Southern Alberta. We want to express our deepest gratitude to every single person who participated or contributed to this event.

We had such a ball (or several, if you count the mulligans!) that we are bringing back the Drive for Distress Charity Golf Tournament in 2024, and we can’t wait to swing into good mental health with you again! Stay tuned for more details.

Get your brand recognized while supporting a great cause (and having a lot of fun!) by securing your sponsorship spot for 2024. Contact Deanna to learn more.

Please direct any sponsorship or general tournament questions to Deanna Holt, deannah@distresscentre.com.

Opportunities to Help

Our volunteer opportunities allow you to provide support in various ways, including over the phone and via chat, text, or email. We also provide extensive practical and ongoing training.

As Calgary’s only 24-hour crisis agency, we are often the first point of contact for those seeking help. Make a career out of making a difference!

Distress Centre is committed to furthering the field of social work, and we view practicum students as a great asset to our team.  Practicum opportunities exist year-round within the Crisis Line Program and Counselling Program, along with other opportunities.
