The Heart of the Matter
In her 70s, Margot Kitchen was the picture of health. As a yogi, her spirituality helped her stay very attuned to her body.Life was everything she could hope for. Then, while preparing to host a yoga seminar, Margot felt something change. Her entire life was about to be put on hold.

STAN (Standard Man)

Born Again - Noelle & Hal the Birth Simulators
She might sound and look like she’s in labour, but don’t let Noelle fool you. “Noelle” and her life-like baby, “Hal”, are the newest additions to the simulation training program at Rockyview General Hospital. Together they give medical professionals and nurses hands-on training for some of the most difficult situations that can arise during labour and delivery.

Dr. Sheldon referred the couple to Calgary Health Trust where they were able to create the Arrhythmia Program Staff Education Endowment.
Pedal Powered Care
When the wheels come off on the life you planned it can be hard to get back in the saddle, but Craig Taylor is challenging that notion, getting on his bike and riding nearly 300km this summer in honour of his daughter Meghan who was born at 25 weeks gestation.
Reach! Excellence in Health Care Fundraising
