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.

FUNDRAISING GOAL 

$25,000!

About

Fit for Care is a week of fundraising wellness events and fitness challenges.

 

We Did it...

Last year’s Fit for Care event raised more than $19,000, enabling the purchase of a tandem wheelchair bicycle and supported garden enhancements.

 

We’re so fortunate to collaborate with Fanshawe College’s Recreation & Leisure Services faculty and students.

 

The students are organized into two-team of 10 and are responsible for planning, organizing, and executing the Wellness Events. Students and staff have created their own fundraising pages and teams to help achieve our fundraising goal.

 

As an added bonus, this year we are super excited to welcome Fanshawe Culinary and Contemporary Media to our collaborative partnership!

 

By exceeding our goal we were able to purchase the wheelchair tandem bicycle. Thank you for your support!
