Since 2007, the Stampeders have been honoured to team up with Hospice Calgary.
The cornerstone of the partnership is the annual Hike for Hospice Calgary. The event raises funds to support individuals and families whose lives are transformed by a life-threatening illness or the death of someone close to them.
Stampeders players, Outriders, fans and even Ralph the Dog are annual participants in the Hike for Hospice Calgary.
Calgary offensive lineman Ryan Sceviour is the official player representative for Hospice Calgary.
In 2021, the Hike for Hospice Calgary will once again be conducted virtually. From May 1-10, Hike for Hospice Calgary participants are encouraged to run, walk, bike or hike for 5 km at some point during the 10-day event.
With the help of the Stampeders, Hospice Calgary is aiming to raise $100,000 through the event for Calgary’s grieving families.
