Angels gather over the Maryland Bridge
WINNIPEG — Angels have touched down in Winnipeg again this year, and for a good cause.
The funds goes towards specialized programs, buying new equipment and enhancing the hospital’s facilities.
Drivers will be able to see the squad – decked out in halos and wings – on the Maryland Bridge Thursday morning. You can also pull into Misericordia’s own “drive-through” between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. where the angels will take donations, and in return you get a hot chocolate or coffee.
The Angel Squad will be stationed at 201 Portage Avenue Friday morning as well.
Last year, the group shattered a Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of angels.
The goal was for more than 1,200 angels to participate – as the record was 1,039 angels held in Germany.
That number was reached, with 1,275 angels gathering in a public area.
