This event would not have been possible without our amazing community volunteers who donated their personal time to organize and run this event.  It would also not have been possible without the support from our community sponsors.  
Things to Know:
  • Entry fee is one non-perishable food item for every entry. All donations will be dropped off at the Calgary Food Bank, thanks to Recycle Logic.
  • Kidseat Recyclers will once again be on hand picking up used and expired car seats. All car seats must be stripped of cloth and buckles beforehand to avoid a $5.00 drop-off fee. WSCRCA is subsidizing the levy to recycle the carseats.
  • This is a volunteer-run event and is made possible by sponsorship and support from 722 World Bier Haus, City of Calgary, WINS, Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta, Recycle Logic, Kidseat Recyclers, Re-Matt, and CFIS (Calgary French and International School), and volunteers like you.

  • We only run until 2:00 p.m. so make sure you stop by early and don’t forget to thank the volunteers!
