A LONG-STANDING PARTNERSHIP BENEFITING THOSE MOST PRECIOUS
For more than 30 years, the Calgary Flames and Flames Foundation have embraced the Alberta Children’s Hospital and the children and families who rely on its care. Special events include the annual Townsend Tigers hockey game and personal patient visits by Calgary Flames players, as well as donations and volunteer support.
In addition to walking alongside families in the final days of an end-of-life journey, Rotary/Flames House provides much needed respite care. This temporary round the clock care of children gives families the rest and renewal they need. Last year, more than 1,908 nights of care were given at the Rotary Flames House along with 160 days of programming for families and kids who needed it. Day programming includes activities like music therapy, pet therapy, school programs, and day trips. Programming also includes support for the parents and siblings of patients.
“Words cannot express my gratitude for the staff and volunteers at Rotary/ Flames house. The warm, loving environment became our safe haven during our darkest days . Thank you all so much.“ -PARENT
