/EINPresswire.com/ -- CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sep 21, 2017) -

WHAT: On Friday, September 29, the annual CEO Rescue in the Rockies for STARS fundraiser will return for its sixth year. This event will feature four prominent Alberta-based CEOs, from both Calgary and Edmonton, being airlifted by STARS air ambulance to a remote wilderness location where they will attempt to collect donations. Armed with their cell phone, wit and determination, each CEO will trade their typical business attire for a flight suit and spend the day conquering challenges until they reach a fundraising goal of $100,000 (per company). Only then can a CEO be 'rescued' by STARS from the mountaintop.
