Did you see the Little Red Wagon at the Calgary Stampede Parade?

Alberta’s Promise and Big Brothers & Big Sisters (BBBS) of Calgary and Area participated in the the Calgary Stampede Parade on the morning of Friday, July 4th.

The parade float, in the shape of a Red Wagon, symbolized the Alberta’s Promise commitment to children and youth. What’s more, BBBS mentors showcased the promise of Caring Adults by walking with their mentees.
