UP & Away Charity Gala

Thank you for attending and supporting the 2024 Kindred UP Gala, powered by the Unlocking Potential (UP) Foundation. This is our premier fundraising event, and this year, you all helped us make a difference to the growing number of children and youth experiencing mental health issues.

  • 59% of young people aged 18-24 feel stressed, up from 38% in 2022. 42% of these young people don’t have access to mental health support.

Kindred helps thousands of Calgarians in building better lives for themselves and their loved ones; we welcome you to be the change at the Kindred UP Gala.

“Looking back now, that extra support when life got stressful was what helped me see I can get through hard things. I once told Erin [Kindred transitions coach] that I wished I had met her sooner. If I had, maybe I would have felt confident in standing up for myself and making better decisions. But that being said, I’m glad I had Kindred when I had no other place to look.”
