Realzim eSociety is organizing The First annual Calgary Kite Festival on July 16th at the Shaw Millennium Park with the support of city of Calgary. Realzim eSociety is a SMART engagement network connecting people, businesses, and the city. It is the next generation online platform that is evolving from “being social” to “being engaged” in purposeful ways. It is a value driven system going beyond “sharing” to “caring and making an impact” on a scale as never before. The Kite Festival is being held to foster citizen engagement and share the rich and vibrant culture of different countries and ethnic groups. The day is packed with a variety of fun activities for the whole family. Please join us to celebrate purposeful community engagement and promote your cultural heritage. The event is also in support of “Stop the Drop” campaign to help kids stay in school. If we as society can assist even one child to continue his or her education, help in reducing hardships then perhaps we have helped in making a scientist, a doctor and a teacher who otherwise would have missed it. You can help us in making it a success and help these children become productive citizens of tomorrow! Senior citizens are also invited to join us for a fun filled day so that we can appreciate their contributions as a community. Please join us to celebrate purposeful community engagement and multicultural heritage. Together, we can make this event a celebration of the Calgary Spirit – making it from the best city in the world, to the best city “for the world!” Let’s give flight to our ideas!

On September 9-11, 2016, an expected 400 Marchers and Crew will make the unforgettable 3 day, 100 km walk from Kananaskis Country to Calgary. Our scenic journey begins at the Millarville Race Track and ends at Canada Olympic Park. Kidney disease affects 1 in 10 Canadians. Our goal for Kidney March is to raise awareness by raising historic amounts of money for the cause. To date, we have already raised over $4 million through Kidney March to support kidney disease prevention, lifesaving research, patient support programs, and organ donation initiatives. Kidney March also creates a sense of community for people affected by this disease. There’s still time to sign up as a Marcher or Crew member. Visit kidneymarch.ca to learn more. Feel free to come out and cheer for our Marchers. Thank you for your support!
