Around Calgary Midnapore

As part of a busy summer Stephanie had the privilege of touring Chabad Lubavitch; and seeing first hand the work they are doing with the community. From feeding seniors, working with the disabled and educating children they are a busy hub of activity and a valuable part of our community. In her former role of Deputy Shadow Minister of Health, Stephanie was honoured to help cut the ribbon at Calgary’s Ovarian Cancer Hope Walk. This annual event raises both needed funding and education on an all-too-often silent cancer that affects women.
