 In support of the Children’s Cottage Society!

Calgary’s biggest family-friendly fundraising fest is back! This October, take a walk on the wild side as we march, get monstrous, and raise $100,000 for our new Crisis Nursery and Family Support Centre.

The Monster March was originally started by Wee Wild Ones in 2017. Previously held at St. Patrick’s Island, the Monster March began as a way for their organization to raise funds to support the Children’s Cottage Society while encouraging families to spend more time together exploring the Calgary community. Now hosted under WilderFutures, Wee Wild Ones dedicated non-profit arm, their favourite fundraising day of the year has been reimaged as a month-long, city-wide campaign!
