Express Employment’s Clydesdales return to Calgary Stampede

Hiring franchise system Express Employment Professionals' Clydesdales are appearing at this year's Calgary Stampede, working with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Southern Alberta.

During the parade on July 3, the team of Clydesdales pulled a family currently staying at a Ronald McDonald House in a stagecoach accompanied by Express CEO Bob Funk. They will also appear nightly as part of the grandstand performances until July 12.

In 2011, Funk and the Clydesdales were honoured to escort the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Catherine, to kick off the stampede. The team also won the 2013 World Champion Six Horse Hitch.

The Clydesdales act as ambassadors for Express Employment Professionals and help raise funds for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Funk and the team have also participated in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day and Kentucky Derby Pegasus Parades.
