The first Exercise Freedom Together campaign ran from August 8 to November 11 2020, a span of time that denotes Canada’s 100 Days – a series of Allied victories leading up to the Armistice of 1918. We invited Canadians to celebrate their freedoms by taking part in an exercise challenge and sharing their participation on social media. This initiative was created in support of the Field of Crosses charity and in memory of Southern Albertans who sacrificed their lives in active combat.
Each of the 3500 crosses erected in Calgary’s Field of Crosses Memorial Park during the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day bears the name of a Southern Albertan who lost their life fighting for freedom. By joining us for the first annual Exercise Freedom Together campaign, you have helped to keep this tradition going.
Be sure to check out the social media accounts on Facebook & Instagram @Exercisefreedomtogether and the tag #Exercisefreedomtogether to see some fun content from all the amazing people who answered the call.
We want to sincerely thank everyone who helped contribute to a successful first year. Field of Crosses is excited to announce that Exercise Freedom Together will return in 2021!
Stay tuned for more details!
