When Cynthia, scientist/mother of three, heard on the news that 4500 children in Calgary would not be able to celebrate Christmas this year, it broke her heart. She decided to help create holiday memories for these underprivileged kids and their families – with the Calgary Polar Express. Based on the classic children’s book (and Tom Hanks movie), families board buses – as giant steam trains for the Christmas ride of a lifetime – before meeting Santa, Mrs. Claus and his Elves at his Workshop in the North Pole.

The experience aims to provide these families a magical experience of love, friendship and a sense of belonging in a caring community during the holiday season. The Calgary Polar Express is the first event of its kind in North America: providing magical memories during the holiday season for children and families who would otherwise not have the opportunity. The Calgary Polar Express supports local family shelter Inn From The Cold, and other community organizations whose mandate is to support the underprivileged. Meanwhile, the CityMax.com team is proud to support Cynthia and her great cause! To sponsor a child/family for this weekend’s Polar Express, visit: www.calgarypolarexpress.com.
