WE'RE ON A MISSION...
McCormick's health care teams are giving their all to fight the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on residents like social isolation and loneliness.
That's why we're on a mission to purchase a wheelchair-accessible swing and to support life enrichment initiatives for residents - providing an inclusive and therapeutic movement experience for both the young and young-at-heart.
WE DID IT!!!
Last year, Fit for Care exceeded the original goal of $10,000 and to date has raised more than $19,000 thanks to you!
Additional funds raised through Fit for Care will support garden enhancements focused on creating a safe space for residents to enjoy recreational activities, social events, or tranquil moments – a place residents can call their own backyard.
Special thanks to Fanshawe College - Recreation & Leisure Services students who so successfully planned, organized, and executed a week of wellness and fitness events.
Exceeding our goal means we have raised enough money to purchase the wheelchair tandem bicycle.
We are extremely grateful for their support and the generosity of our sponsors, participants, and donors. We're looking forward to next year.
Thank you for helping us achieve our goal!
Fit for Care is a series of wellness events and fitness challenges that raises funds for the McCormick Care Foundation. It is an innovative collaboration between McCormick Care Foundation and Fanshawe College’s Recreation and Leisure students in support of enhancing care, enriching lives, and advancing dementia care at McCormick Care Group.
