This year, business influencers Robert H. Geddes, President and COO, Ensign Energy Services Inc.; Ken Mullen, President and CEO, Savanna Energy Services Corp.; Brent Hesje, CEO, Fountain Tire; and David Smith, President and COO, Keyera Corp., will be airlifted from the Peace Bridge helipad and dropped off at a remote location in Kananaskis Country. The CEOs will have only one tool at their disposal to get them off the mountain - their cell phones.
Throughout the day, the competitors will be challenged with "survival tests" and will compete with each other to be the fastest to raise $100,000 in donations. Once they reach their goal, they will be "rescued" from their location by STARS helicopter and returned to civilization.
"Being the first Edmontonian to participate gives me a unique fundraising advantage," says event challenger Brent Hesje.
