The Oxford Stomp supports the Rotary Club of Calgary is a registered charity that invests 100% of the proceeds from this event back into the local community through a variety of charitable contributions, most notably the Rotary/Flames House. Last year $100,000 was raised for this very worthy cause!
The Rotary/Flames House is a hospice for children located next to the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Thanks to incredible community support, Calgary is the first city in Alberta and only the sixth in North America to have a free-standing, community-based facility to support families of children facing progressive, chronic or life-limiting illness. The House offers respite for families whose children have very complex medical needs and palliative support as well as end-of-life care. Working with parents, siblings and family and friends, the palliative and grief support team offers hope in the most unimaginable circumstances. We truly appreciate the participation of our sponsors and patrons whose support of this event has helped contribute to this meaningful facility.
