Ask anyone who attended the 19th annual Hearth Place Ski and Spa Day what they remember most about this year's event, and you'd probably get a variety of answers from the spectacular views, to the great après ski, to the massages offered at the bottom of the hill!

"Many of the skiers were pleasantly surprised when they saw our massage chair set up near the slopes", said Devin Dawson, Registered Massage Therapist from LifeMark Physiotherapy Cambridge Clinic, who donated his massage talents to help restore skiers between runs or after they had finished their runs. "We had a chance to get to know some of the participants as well as chat with them about our cancer rehab program, our support of Hearth Place as well as our variety of other physiotherapy and massage therapy programs."

Krista McIntyre, Clinic Director and Physiotherapist at LifeMark Physiotherapy Whitby, attended the Ski and Spa Day and reported that the fundraiser was an overwhelming success. "Our Oshawa and Whitby clinics donated $300 as a Breakfast Sponsor for the event.We also donated a basket of health and wellness items as a 'gift in kind', consisting of an exercise ball, a gift certificate for a 30-minute massage, exercise band, pens and a calendar." Participants also paid $10 for 10 minute massages by our volunteer massage therapist, Devin Dawson, RMT from LifeMark Physiotherapy Cambridge, with all funds for massages being donated directly to Hearth Place. In total, the net fundraising for Hearth Place from this one day event amounted to $8,200.
