Since December 2007 Michael Christianson, a financial planner with Sun Life Financial in Cranbrook, has been dedicating volunteer hours to the role of a director on the board of East Kootenay Foundation for Health.

During those past six years, Michael has not just attended board and committee meetings but you may have seen him flipping pancakes, serving burgers, selling tickets or attending events as his way of making a difference to the foundation’s fundraising efforts.

Last week, Sun Life Financial’s Corporate Volunteer Group honoured Michael by making a $500 gift in his honour to support EKFH’s mission to provide funding for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital and other community facilities in complementing the health care needs of the region.

Sun Life Financial is committed to being a good corporate citizen in the communities in which they live and work, investing in initiatives that promote sustainability, health and wellness and arts and cultural programs designed to enrich and make a difference in the lives of Canadians.
