I can say, without reservation, that the Calgary Children’s Foundation stands in the company of the many Calgary groups that make a difference in Calgary.

Since its inception in the mid 1970s to the establishment of Global News Radio 770 CHQR’s partnership with The Westin Calgary, the Calgary Children’s Foundation’s constant focus has been to reach out and help kids in Calgary.
