The Exercise Freedom Together campaign invites Canadians to celebrate their freedom by participating in an exercise challenge. All donations will benefit the Field of Crosses charity.
Field of Crosses honours the brave Southern Albertans who sacrificed their lives in active combat. We display 3,500 white crosses annually at Calgary’s Field of Crosses Memorial Park during the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day. Each cross bears the name of a Southern Albertan who lost their life fighting for freedom. By participating in the Exercise Freedom Together campaign, you can help us keep this tradition going.
Exercise Freedom Together asks single participants to donate $5 and ‘squads’ (groups of up to five people) to donate $25. The challenge is to post a photo on Facebook and/or Instagram of you and your squad running, walking or biking three kilometres (we encourage you to place your hand over your heart in the photo!). Make sure to use the tags @Exercisefreedomtogether and #Exercisefreedomtogether so that we can share your involvement on our page. Challenge friends and family to participate as well!
The campaign will run from August 8 to November 11 2020. This span of time denotes Canada’s 100 Days, a series of Allied victories leading up the Armistice of 1918. We will be sharing educational material about Canadian military history on our social platforms over the course of these 100 days, so be sure to follow us @Exercisefreedomtogether on Instagram and Facebook.
Over recent months, many of us have felt a limited sense of freedom or control. We want this socially-distanced fundraiser to bring people together by getting them outside and active.
We encourage you to participate in honor of those who have fallen while wearing the Canadian uniform.
