As a long-time resident of the Comox Valley, REALTOR® Cindy Armstrong of RE/MAX Ocean Pacific Realty knows how important it is to support local organizations. Cindy’s ongoing commitment to the Comox Valley and the people who live here, make her work as a real estate agent both enjoyable and rewarding.
Some Comox Valley organizations that Cindy supports include:
Y.A.N.A. (You Are Not Alone)
Y.A.N.A. is a non-profit society providing financial assistance to families in the Comox Valley (Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland and outlying areas) whose children must be moved from the Valley for medical care.
In 2011 Cindy participated in a fundraising event for Y.A.N.A. - a calendar of 12 local female real estate agents in the Comox Valley. The real estate agents worked collaboratively for a year to ensure the success of this worthwhile cause. This event raised $14, 000 for Y.A.N.A.
Children's Miracle Network
As part of the RE/MAX Ocean Pacific real estate team, Cindy Armstrong donates part of her commission for each real estate transaction completed in the spring months to the BC Children's Hospital through the Children's Miracle Network.
One of North America's leading charities, the Children's Miracle Network helps sick children and their families.
Race for the Cure
Through sponsorship of the Komen Race for the Cure Series and the Home for the Cureprogram, RE/MAX Associates have contributed more than $3 million to the fight against breast cancer. Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which is now the world’s largest breast cancer organization and the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer with more than $1.9 billion invested to date. Cindy contributes part of her commissions to this Breast Cancer charity.
Cindy and Lisa participate in the RE/MAX Yard Sale for The Cure held annually in the Comox Valley. This event involves a lot of hours, planning and hard work, however, much fun is had by all.
Comox Valley Baseball Association
The CVBA's goal is to encourage, promote, aid in and affect the voluntary development of the sport of baseball in the Comox Valley. They have a very dedicated group of coaches and assistant coaches who provide fun and learning for players aged 5 - 18 years old including Rep baseball.
Cindy donates part of her commission annually to this great organization.
Comox Valley Salvation Army
The Salvation Army provides community and family services to families in need in 39 British Columbia communities including the Comox Valley.
Every year the RE/MAX Ocean Pacific real estate team donates $10,000 towards the Comox Valley Salvation Army's hot lunch program.
Comox Valley Soccer Club
In 2011 Cindy and other Comox Valley real estate agents sponsored the Comox Valley United Soccer Club with a $3500 donation to the Legacy Turf Field Project. The Turf Field will benefit other user groups by providing two artificial playing fields that can be used year-round with little disruption from inclement weather. Combined with lights, the estimated usage time for the turf field is 4000 hours per year compared with the estimated usage time of 600 hours per year for a natural playing field.
