Calgary – The Step Up For Ostomy event will be held at the Inglewood Community Hall and features an awareness walk through the beautiful Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, followed by a BBQ lunch and Ostomy Expo. Participants will meet others with an ostomy or j-pouch, speak to ostomy industry reps, learn about new products, get free samples, and win prizes. The community hall will open to the public at 10 a.m. for registration. The event will run from 11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., so plan to spend the day with us. Please join us for lunch even if you cannot participate in the awareness walk.
