Catching the spirit: University stampedes into summer

UToday HomeJuly 3, 2013

Yahoo! Thousands came out to celebrate at the President’s Stampede Barbecue and show their community support for those affected by the recent floods.

The university is proud to support our partners at the Calgary Stampede as they recover from the flood and prepare for Stampede 2013. Our campus community donated $2,500 for the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Floods Fund and several bins of food items for the Campus Food Bank.

Chancellor Jim Dinning and President Elizabeth Cannon helped kick off the community event and thanked everyone for showing their community spirit at the President’s Stampede Barbecue and fundraiser.
