“This is a great event and I’m really glad to be here to support it,” said Lascelles Brown, three-time Olympian and two-time Olympic medallist. “These kids and their families go through so much and are so brave. They totally deserve a parade and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

“Calgary’s a big city with an even bigger heart and this parade is just another example of that heart in action,” said Amy Gough, Vancouver 2010 Olympian. “Anything we can do to bring some joy and hope to these children is a great idea and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
