Cheering All Season Long!

26 Nov Cheering All Season Long!

As another amazing CFL season comes to an end, we are so grateful to be able to look back and reflect on all the amazing memories made and take time to thank the supporters who made it all possible.

Thanks to the Calgary Stampeders and their generous patrons, we were able to provide over 6,230 tickets to Stampeders games and 210 tickets to the Grey Cup game! All season long, we heard stories about kiddos attending their first Stampeders game and being able to enjoy precious moments with loved ones. Check out this thank you note from one of our families:

“Aidan and I would like to send you our biggest thanks for allowing us to go the Calgary Stampeders vs Toronto Argonauts on Friday, September 28th. He had never seen a game played at McMahon stadium and loved how close he was to the field. There were some great catches, fumbles and interceptions with Calgary crushing the Argonauts 38 to 16! And to top it all off, there was a huge firework show at the end. Thanks again!” – From a grateful family!

Throughout the entire Stampeders season, for every offensive yard gained by the Stampeders, Shane Homes donated $1 to Kids Up Front. Their amazing support allows us to keep doing what we do and helps us remove barriers to access that families often face when participating in these activities. Thank you, Shane Homes, for your incredible support and for giving our kids and families the chance to cheer all season long.

This season was extra special because Calgary hosted the Grey Cup Festival, with nonstop family friendly events all week long throughout the city. From concerts and fireworks to tube slides, the Grey Cup Festival truly had something for everyone. Thanks to Shaw CFL, our families even got to access some VIP experiences. We partnered with Autism Aspergers Friendship Society and Shaw to provide a one on one lesson with Bo Levi Mitchell! We think it’s safe to say that our kiddos are ready to join the team next year.

Thank you note that reads " thank you for the stamps ticket because of you donating them i got to go to a cfl game for the first time in my life and it was awesome"

Until next year fellow Stampeders’ fans, thank you for your commitment to sharing the love of sport and allowing families to enjoy these once in a lifetime experiences!
