2020 Trail Blazer Breakfast Dates / Times 2020-05-07 to 2020-05-07 (07:30 to 09:30) Organization Calgary Homeless Foundation Type Single Day Community Hyatt Regency 700 Centre Street SECalgary, ABT2G 5P6 403.718.8534 Trail Blazer Breakfast is the annual marquee fundraiser hosted by Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF), that provides an opportunity to connect thought-leaders, innovators, philanthropists, influencers and entrepreneurs in Calgary – people who aren't afraid to blaze new trails and leverage joint resources and expertise in order to collectively address the complex social issues of poverty and homelessness in our city. Keynote Speaker: Lieutenant-General (ret) The Honourable Roméo A. Dallaire As a military commander, humanitarian, senator or author, Roméo Dallaire has elevated our national consciousness. Whether shining a light on the atrocities of the Rwandan genocide; the struggle that he and many other military veterans face with post-traumatic stress disorder; or the recruitment and use of child soldiers, he has felt compelled to set aside his natural reserve to bring national and international attention to situations too often ignored. We invite you to be a part of this event and experience a true force of transformative action as he shares impactful leadership lessons and thoughts on the need for trailblazing in Canada - specifically in the areas of mental health and homelessness.
