Kubota and CHL looking for heroes
By Adam FreillConstruction Equipment Leadership
Kubota Canada and the Canadian Hockey League have launched their fifth annual Community Hero contest.
Canada’s major junior hockey organization and Kubota are looking to reward five Canadians who are doing great things in their communities. Kubota Canada Ltd., in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), has launched nominations for its 2023 Community Hero contest.
Now in its fifth year, Community Hero has brought attention to and commemorated thousands of Canadians who are making a positive impact in their respective communities across the country. This year, the stakes have been upped with additional heroes being recognized, aligning with both companies’ drive to make a difference in the communities in which they are closely involved. This year, a $75,000 grant will be distributed among five winners, helping them reinvest in their communities and in the organizations in which they are involved.
Thanks to the efforts of Kubota Canada and the CHL, Canadians will have the opportunity to nominate a hero in their community who deserves the spotlight. Everyone’s Community Hero looks different, but nominations are open to anyone making a difference in their community, from dedicated volunteers, healthcare workers to sports coaches, and more.
“It is often easy to think of a community hero or an individual who goes above and beyond in your community, however, their job may come without glamour, and their goal is not glory,” explained Andrew Marshall, vice-president of sales, marketing and dealer development at Kubota. “This year we are excited to celebrate five years of community heroes, the amazing contributions of previous winners and recognize up-and-coming heroes.”
“Community Hero is an initiative that the CHL is honoured to be a part of,” said Dan MacKenzie, CHL president. “We see countless individuals making an impact in our lives and they often do so without being asked and without asking for recognition. That’s why We are proud to partner with Kubota Canada in order to shine a light on the incredible work being done by community members across the country and we look forward to recognizing five Canadians this year.”
