RRU: A recognized leader in our community


The United Way of Greater Victoria celebrated having raised 5.01 million dollars in the 2017 campaign with the annual Spirit Awards event earlier this week.  Royal Roads was nominated for three awards:

  • Outstanding Campaign Committee
  • Post-Secondary Challenge
  • Outstanding Workplace Campaign

While we were not the successful nominees in the first two categories, we whole heartedly celebrate the winners: Queen Alexandra Centre for Children’s Health and Camosun College.

We are, however, the happy recipients of the Outstanding Workplace Campaign award! 

This is arguably the best award as there is only one recipient out of the 275 organizations that run a campaign.  This award recognizes an organization that has achieved outstanding campaign results by implementing best practices, innovative approaches and creativity in the campaign as well as boasting an outstanding ECC and/or Committee. It is an overall OUTSTANDING campaign in various categories.

The committee cannot run an outstanding campaign without the support and participation of outstanding people.  This award is for all of us. 

Congratulations, RRU, on being the best of the best!
