Hearts for Hospice

Quinn McLeod and I had the pleasure of attending Hearts for Hospice. What a wonderful event hosted by the Pilgrims Hospice. This organization provides supportive and compassionate family-centred care to enhance the quality and dignity of life for those diagnosed with a progressive, life-threatening illness, as well as solace to those who are bereaved. Any person in Edmonton and its surrounding area can access calm and compassionate care at the end of life, or as a survivor or loved one, to seek help with transition caused by death.

Winter Walk Day in Calgary

This week Albertans embraced the crisp air by participating in Winter Walk Day, when SHAPE (Safe, Happpy, Active People Everywhere) are encouraged to get outside & walk for at least 15 minutes.

Everyone is welcome to join in, including schools, seniors centres, commuters, individuals and families.
