“Music brings people together. So my function in anything I do is to help bring people closer in.” – Gord Downie
Welcome to GEDfest: celebrating the life of Gordon Edgar Downie, and the music of the Tragically Hip. Gord Downie continues to be a poetic and musical inspiration to the world.
On October 15th, Tragically Hip Tribute band Trickle Down is playing at The Rooftop YYC. with all proceeds being donated to the Calgary’s newest Cancer Centre through the Alberta Cancer Foundation. This new addition to the OWN.CANCER campaign will make an incredible difference here in Calgary.
Please help us honour Gord Downie, who the world lost to glioblastoma, and raise awareness and funds for cancer research. All proceeds raised will be donated to the Calgary Cancer Centre. Together, we identify the greatest needs and the biggest opportunities to improve patient experience.
At the root of everything he did, Gord Downie embodied courage. We honour Gord by revisiting his powerful words that continue to lend courage to those who need it most.
