|What is The Balance Foundation? |
The Balance Foundation was established in 2018 after co-founder, Colton Lewis, and his friend, Brett Wiese, were viciously attacked while attending a private house party during their studies at the University of Calgary. Colton miraculously survived, while Brett tragically succumbed to his injuries. Shortly after, Colton joined together with mutual friends Brad Pocock and Wyatt Norn to develop The Balance Foundation as a way to always remember Brett Wiese.
Their mission for the foundation is to empower youth’s involvement in sport, create and support educational opportunities for at-risk youth, host events to raise awareness and funds to support key foundation pillars and fundraise to assist in developing a sports complex for opportunity youth in Calgary.
