Mavericks Chuckwagon Racing Team

The Mavericks Chuckwagon Racing Team is a group of 25 businessmen from the Calgary area dedicated to raising significant funds to actively support Calgary and area children-focused not-for-profit agencies and individual needs.

All Mavericks participate and volunteer their time to assist this worthy cause. The organization is formally registered as an Alberta not-for-profit Society (The Mavericks Chuckwagon Society). The Mavericks have been raising funds for children’s charities since 2001. The Mavericks’ fundraising activities have grown considerably over the last decade.

In 2011, the Maverick’s major fundraising event was the Country Hills Golf Club Charity Golf Classic at which over $225,000 was raised for Calgary area charities. Other fundraising efforts include the “Mini Chuckwagon Race” between the periods of the Calgary Hitmen’s Western Night. To date, the Mavericks have raised over $2 million towards Children’s Charities in the Calgary area.


The Mavericks main funding principles are as follows:


Principle One

All funds raised from dedicated charity fund raising events (i.e. The Country Hills Golf Club Charity Classic, Hitmen Western Night) must be used ONLY for Charity.


Principle Two

All chuckwagon operating costs are funded by Maverick member fees ONLY and the sale of barn nights. Excess funding in operating maybe transferred to charity by vote at membership meeting.


Principle Three

All charity funds raised by the Mavericks will be transferred to and donated through the Big Hearted Mavericks Foundation.
