The Howling Wolf

Just as our wolf logo symbolizes the leadership, loyalty, strength of character and sense of family that is displayed by emergency responders, The Howling Wolf serves as the voice of the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund. A wolf’s howl attracts other members of the pack, invites communication and creates a strong bond between pack members. We hope this blog will have the same impact on emergency responders, workplace safety professionals and traffic safety advocates, bringing us all together in the same pack and providing valuable information about workplace safety issues affecting first responders.

Check in frequently for updates on JPMF events and initiatives, interesting research and to add your own howl to our pack.

Half Marathon Helpers

The John Petropoulos Memorial Fund is once again pleased to be helping out at the Calgary Police Half Marathon, which is taking place on Sunday, April 28th.

We will be hosting a water station for the runners in South Glenmore Park and we’re looking for volunteers to help mix Gatorade, fill cups with water and hand out beverages to race participants.

Help is also needed with water station setup and keeping the site clean. No previous experience is required and volunteers are needed from 7:30 am until 11 am.

Volunteers are asked to meet in South Glenmore Park, just north of the intersection of 90 Ave. and 24 St. S.W. Parking is available near the water station.


As well, we encourage helpers to dress appropriately. Even with the warmer weather lately, the temperatures can drop in the morning. And it’s Calgary, so the weather conditions during the race can range from sunny to snowy to rainy and windy or all of the above. Please bring gloves, toques, warm coats, etc.

If you have questions, please contact volunteer coordinator Ian Wilson at or 403-891-4269.
