RAISED TO DATE...AND STILL COUNTING!
For getting active, having fun, and raising funds at Medpoint's Fit for Care event advancing excellence in dementia and senior care at McCormick Home.
Medpoint's Fit for Care event was a great success. We were blessed with perfect weather as Christine Simpson reporter for SportsNet and Hockey Night in Canada kicked off the 5K run/walk early morning on Sunday, October 16, 2022.
THANK YOU to the more than 100 participants, volunteers, residents, and family members who participated - raising more than $29,100 (to date) in support of additional life enrichment activities, and services for residents at McCormick Home.
So many people from the surrounding community were there to enjoy camaraderie, exercise, music, a BBQ, and tasty treats from the West 5 and local business communities were in attendance. Together we celebrated our accomplishments - from our top runners to our top fundraisers, and the lucky few who won door prizes.
This event was made possible thanks to the generous support and commitment of our amazing volunteers and sponsors.
From our presenting partner Medpoint Health Care Centre, resident-run partner Silver Fox, and our hydration-station sponsors Trident Property Management, Forever Homes, Sifton Retirement Living, and Co-operators Jennifer Trevor, to our prize and award sponsors Ben Thanh, Wise Guys Inc., Backroad Brews + Shoes, Biosteel, and Yurek Mobility.
Congratulations to the Rolling Oaks team who have gained the title of Top Fundraising Resident Team. Evergreen Eagles are in second place, followed by the Mighty Memory Laners, Majestic Maples, and the Willow Warriors.
