Stampede experience for Special Olympics athletes

Special Olympics Calgary was excited to have Encana offer a Stampede experience for our athletes!

Stampede experience 2015

Thanks to Encana, through one of our volunteers, Ed Strappazzon, we had a special opportunity for some of our Special Olympics athletes to attend the Calgary Stampede! Encana arranged a Stampede experience and invited some of our athletes to join them in their infield suite for the rodeo on Friday, July 3rd, 2015!

To find which athletes would attend this kickin' opportunity, we had a contest for all to enter! The winners of the contest were:

Andreas Walther
Gino Lucarelli
Jamie Piea
Johanna Dias
Murray Fairs
Nathan Pilling
Nelson Chizmadia
Paul Oldridge
Paul Thomson
Sarah Peterson

DSC 2621

Thank you Ed, Joanie and Encana for this great experience for our athletes. Everyone had a great time!
