Join us for an uplifting, celebratory Thanksgiving tradition that creates life-changing tools and support for local families.

Sunday, October 12th
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Eau Claire Market


All funds raised from this event will go directly to providing education, care and support for impacted families in Calgary and surrounding areas. The difference you'll make is concrete, practical and immediate.

Event participants don't need to postpone their Thanksgiving festivities. You'll still have plenty of time to spend with friends and family!

Last year, close to 1,700 participants raised a record amount of more than $300,000+ to benefit local families.

Add extra meaning to the event experience. Post your own dedications, photos, tributes or mementos along "Memory Lane" by Manor Village near the start and finish line.
