Our Charitable Partners Santa's Anonymous and Black Gold Health Foundation

Castrol Raceway is proud to announce that a portion of all proceeds will be going to our charitable partners; Santa's Anonymous and The Black Gold Health Foundation. You can read more about these wonderful organizations below:

Santa's Anonymous

The mission of 630 CHED Santas Anonymous is simple: to see every child receive a new toy at Christmas. Since Jerry Forbes founded the charity in 1955, that mission has stayed the same.

Relying on thousands of volunteers and donors, 630 CHED Santas Anonymous now collects, sorts, packages, and delivers toys to over 25,000 children every year.

More than 60 years ago, 1080 CHED’s production manager Jerry Forbes felt compelled to start Santas Anonymous. Jerry worked his way up at CHED, eventually becoming the station’s general manager after it moved to 630 on the AM dial. Jerry spent 28 years at CHED, retiring in June 1981. He passed away in September 1981.

In the years since, the board, staff, and volunteers of 630 CHED Santas Anonymous have carried the torch, with generations of Edmontonians fulfilling Jerry’s dream:

“Wouldn’t it be great if there would be no needy kids and every kid had a present? Not a used present -- with wheels stuck on and repainted -- but a brand new present. From that modest start we said, ‘Well, let’s do it.’ So we went ahead and for the first few years we ran it up on the second floor here just with my staff and from there it just grew and grew.”

Black Gold Health Foundation

Health care is a concern that touches all of us – every day someone we know is affected by health-related issues.

Because of this, the Black Gold Health Foundation recognizes the importance of our health-care services and the valuable contributions they make to the quality of life in our community.

The Black Gold Health Foundation (BGHF) (established in 1993 as a registered charity) forms an important link between the community and the health-care services provided at the Leduc Community Hospital and the public Health Centres of Beaumont, Leduc and Thorsby.
