Whether we were releasing our inner beast with Muay Thai classes, working our energy and flexibility with HotShop Hot Yoga, or keeping Calgary safe with Firefighters in Prince Edward Island Park, the Subway Summer of Sport was all about community. We couldn’t have done it without YOU!
We asked you for any event, activity, or sport that was somehow active, outdoors, or based on a commitment to a fit and healthy lifestyle and you provided us with an overwhelming amount of support, recommendations and an endless supply of memories.
There comes a time however, when breaking the rules is necessary, After the tragic flooding in Southern Alberta we received a very high volume of requests to provide our service to people in need, as opposed to sports and activities. As a promotion geared towards public participation this could not be ignored. The Salvation Army in High River, Flood Relief Patrol in heavily affected Calgary neighborhoods, and The Drop In Centre were all visited. I consider this to be the highlight of the Summer. To be in a position to respond to peoples needs was a very profound experience.
So thank you Calgary, for the incredible learning experience, and for all your help in creating the Subway Summer of Sport 2013.
I look forward to meeting you next year!
