Thank you for sharing
your voice, Calgary
To every Calgarian and organization who championed this effort; the thousands of tireless volunteers and our hardworking Calgary 2026 Bid team – Thank You! We salute our athletes who shared their stories, their energy and their inspiration for aiming for excellence, always. We also thank our partners: the City of Calgary, the Government of Alberta, the Government of Canada, the Town of Canmore, our Indigenous Partners and the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Committees. This was a truly remarkable and historic team effort with invigorating discussions and partnerships that leave a proud legacy all of their own.
The Olympic and Paralympic Games showcase that the most important thing is not to win, but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. While the two words ‘thank you’ do not seem nearly big enough for the effort by so many, we say thank you to everyone who took part and threw their heart and soul into this community discussion.
