4 Wing PSP Program & Event Sponsorship Opportunities
The 4 Wing Personnel Support Programs (PSP) organization is pleased to offer various opportunities for your organization to show their support for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Defence Team through our many programs, services and events.
By becoming a sponsor, you ensure that the programs and services we provide continue to contribute to the health, morale, and quality of life of those who serve. Your sponsorship not only helps us achieve our goals of supporting the Defence team and the community, it also provides you with an unparalleled opportunity to support your community while promoting your organization.
Please have a look at the below opportunities available or download our Sponsorship Package
There are many great recreational programs we offer here at 4 Wing Cold Lake. Examples of such programs are the ticket subsidies we offer to Kinosoo Ridge Snow Resort; special pricing for Swim Lessons at the Col J.J. Parr Sports Centre; free access to the Defense Team to our Open Play program at the Mackenzie Arts & Community Centre (MACC); special pricing to programs like Zumba and Yoga; Spring and Summer break programs for Defense Team children; and other special events like woodworking or craft classes, etc. Currently there are different programs that we can offer virtually during these uncertain times, like Take-and-Make crafts, online cooking classes, healthy food boxes for Units on base, etc.
With much uncertainty in situations relating to COVID-19 restrictions, our ability to run a lot of our programs is unattainable without additional funding. It is essential for us to ensure we have support from our local and regional community partners.
Below you will find various levels of sponsorship you can choose that will allow us to continue these programs and more.
PSP hosts many wonderful events to help boost the morale of the Defence community. Without support, many of these events couldn’t take place. With the uncertainty that COVID-19 presents, some of the below events may have to be canceled/postponed or modified.
Wing Commander’s Wellness Challenge – Summer 2021
The Wing Commander’s Wellness Challenge can take on many different forms from walking/biking to work, to cooking healthy meals/snacks, to healthy living BINGO challenges, and so on. The event typically kicks off with a Wing Commander’s Wellness Walk for all 4 Wing members and then the challenge for the summer is announced. Incentives/prizes are awarded for these challenges in order to reward member’s for participating.
Whatever the challenge may be, it requires support to run. Our team is working on developing multiple activities for this year that can be executed no matter the environment we find ourselves in. More details on the type of challenge will be made available closer to Spring.
Supporting this event will help PSP in their goal to keep our members fit and healthy.

Volksmarch & Oktoberfest – September 25, 2021
Volkssport is an international sporting event that translates as “people’s sport” and has the motto “FUN, FITNESS AND FRIENDSHIP”.
This sport began over 30 years ago in Europe where they identified a need for healthy, organized, non-competitive activities that are suitable for all ages and physical abilities. One of the most popular Volkssport events is Volksmarching, which is a non-competitive 5 km or 10 km walk. Volksmarching is not a pledge or a race, but a fun, friendly, social activity that you can do with your friends, family, pets, or all by yourself.
On 25 September 2021, 4 Wing will once again be bringing the Volksmarch to Cold Lake as part of a combined event. The Volksmarch event will start at the Cadet Training Camp and finish in the Event Tent at Club 41 where we will be hosting an Oktoberfest, which gives participants the opportunity to enjoy German style food and live entertainment.
This event is open to everyone within the Cold Lake and Lakeland Region where participants will not only be left with a positive German experience, but will also leave with a beer stein. In 2019, a larger venue was created from 2018 to invite even more participants to enjoy this unique event. All tickets sold out.

Polar Express Bus Trip
Available to active military and civilian members of the 4 Wing Defence Team and their dependents, morale & welfare bus trips provide members an opportunity to attend events and visit locations at little to no cost.
The Polar Express Bus Trip is a magical story come to life where members travel to Stettler, Alberta for a train ride that departs for an hour long round-trip journey to the North Pole. Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, passengers will relive the magic of the story as they are whisked away on THE POLAR EXPRESS™. After this amazing night of magic, they return to Edmonton for a night at a hotel. The next morning, a trip to the West Edmonton Mall is planned for a holiday shopping spree, amusements and fun for the whole family.
Support for this event will help offset costs and make it affordable for any member of the Defense Team and their family to participate.
