CFN BEAR SPONSOR FOR
16th ANNUAL MISKANAWAH
SPORT FOR LIFE
CFN was very proud to be the Bear Sponsor for this year's annual Miskanawah Round Dance. For the past 16 years, Miskanawah has hosted an annual Round Dance, which has since become the largest Round Dance in Southern Alberta!
A Round Dance is an Indigenous social gathering that extends a welcoming invitation to everyone in a celebration of friendship, diversity, and inclusivity.
CFN recently hosted the Calgary stop of the nationwide Sport for Life Summit. Sport for Life recognizes that quality sport and physical activity offer rich benefits to Canadian society through improved health, stronger communities, higher sporting achievement, and stronger national identity.
The Sport for Life Summit brings together leaders who work together to enhance the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. The Summit establishes an environment for idea generation through thoughtful and open dialogue across a range of topics. Through knowledge sharing, the Summit can help build and maintain networks while identifying opportunities for innovation.
