Sales Director Jordan Clarke helping raise funds for STARS Air Ambulance.
At Ritchie Bros., we have a long-held commitment to supporting the communities where we work and live. And we’re fortunate that so many of our employees are passionate about supporting local causes that are near and dear to their hearts. One of those people is Sales Director, Jordan Clarke, who helps lead our Agriculture Division in Western Canada.
On September 16, 2021, Jordan will be talking part in an event called “Rescue On The Prairie”, a fundraising event for STARS Air Ambulance – a charitable organization that Ritchie Bros. has been involved in supporting for many years. STARS cares for and transports critically ill and injured patients, and have flown more than 45,000 missions since their inception in 1985, averaging eight missions per day across Western Canada!

To keep the helicopters flying, STARS is resorting to “drastic measures.” A group of brave souls from Saskatchewan, including Jordan Clarke, are being flown by helicopter to a remote location, only to be “rescued” and returned to civilization once they each raise $50,000 for STARS through donations and by completing an exciting series of medical and survival challenges.
Needless to say, we are super proud of and honoured to support our brave Mr. Clarke for undertaking this adventure, and we encourage you to help him reach his fundraising goal of $50,000. If you’d like to learn more and pledge funds to ensure he’s safely returned to civilization, his family, and to Ritchie Bros., visit Jordan’s fundraising page here.
