Give The Gift Of Play This GivingTuesday

Did you know we are a charity? That’s right, a charitable enterprise - this means we are always working to balance just that, our commitment to social good and being a sustainable enterprise. Your membership at Vivo is not just a membership to a facility. Your membership supports Everybody Plays — our way of helping neighbours in the community access physical activities, play opportunities and social connections at Vivo. 

Last year we were able to help more than 2300 neighbours!

We're here to help!

We know times have been tough for many Calgarians. Physical activities and wellness are often the first to go when times are hard. That's why Everybody Plays is such an important initiative. The primary focus is to remove financial barriers! Nothing should get in the way of play!

GivingTuesday is a wonderful time to celebrate YOU! For every in-person donation to Everybody Plays - you get to showcase your donation on a play decal. It is a celebration of your generosity and inspiration for other Vivo members to Give the Gift of Play!
