Get Involved With Our Calgary Community!

At Surrideo Orthodontics, it is important to us to give back to the local community that serves us so well. As your local orthodontic office, we work hard to create beautiful and healthy smiles for our patients in Calgary and local neighborhoods. We see patients from Marda Loop, Aspen, Lincoln Park and all of our surrounding communities, so doing our part to service those communities is just as important as our commitment to healthy smiles. We take pride in participating in some of the local events that help create an even better, more thriving place for all of us to live. Below is a list of some of the programs and events that are important to us.

 

Marda Gras

Marda Gras is a free, family-friendly street festival with live music, dance and cultural performances, a fun kids area, interesting shopping and lots of great food! We love helping to build and strengthen the fabric of our community by participating in events where we can all spend time together.

Neighbourlink Calgary

Neighbourlink Calgary is a registered charity that helps thousands of low-income families and individuals get a fresh start in life by providing them with basic provisional items many of us take for granted such as beds and other furniture, cookware, transportation and personal hygiene items.

 

The Alex

The Alex is a not-for-profit community health network that has been listening and responding to the needs of Calgarians for longer than four decades. This charity provides primary medical care and housing support to the most vulnerable members of our society.

 

Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation

Dress For The Cause

Each year, the Breast Cancer Society of Canada hosts a Dress For The Cause event wherein it asks businesses, clubs, schools and organizations to donate, dress in pink and host pink-themed events to raise money for breast cancer research.

 

Run For The Cure

The Run For The Cure is an annual fundraising event sponsored by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation that brings together a community of people who have a personal connection to breast cancer and want to show their support by running or walking. The money raised during the event is invested in the most promising breast cancer research.
