Water Safety Tips

by Stacie Gaetz

Whether you are at a pool, splash park, or natural body of water, it is time to remind your children about water safety - because their lives could depend on it.


2022 Hike for Hospice Calgary

You choose when, where and how. Honour your loved ones in the Hike for Hospice Calgary by walking a favourite pathway or visiting some personally meaningful spots. With your support, Hospice Calgary hopes to raise $100,000 for their services.

Walk, run or bike – wherever and whenever you like. (All they ask is that you’ve finished a total of 5 km by May 16th.) Hike for Hospice Calgary will once again have a virtual event this year, ensuring your safety while giving you lots of options to reflect and celebrate the lives of the people you love.
