Stampede Prelude Parade is a fundraiser for C.F( Cystic Fibrosis), Kinsmen National Fundraiser- we drive coincatcher wagons down the Parade route calling out for the spectators to throw loose change!! We also use the Prelude as an oppurtunity to showcase some Wheels prizes and invite the people to the grounds. We have a CF Youth representative as marshall and several parents helping to gather the change. The KCC is required to provide 15- 20 Kin, wives or kids to help drive floats and pick-up change! This annual event provides approx. $6500 - $10,000 dollars for CF. Plus the KCC receives alot of exposure in downtown Calgary. This year might be a record setting fundraiser as Mr. Don Hewitt has set up a Text to Donate number, new to Mile of Dimes. Coffee, water, donuts, cookies at Parade beginnig - water during the walk. PLEASE NOTE- Parade Route is NON SMOKING !!! ..

A giant thank-you to Mark.G; Matt; Glenn; Cowboy for their efforts on a holiday week-end, this was a very gratifying project, with immediate results. Tasks done by KCC volunteers were; weeding pathes, gardens, trimming grass, mowing lawn, raking up leaves, pruning bushes & trees. We accomplished alot in just 3 hours. Extra thanks to Matt & Glenn for bring bags of grass/branches to landfill. Fellowship was at Woody's Taphouse- (Rickards Red & Nachos).
