Your Health Your Way

JOIN US in raising the funds needed to bring tomorrow’s healthcare to West Parry Sound TODAY

I have an invitation for you. I am writing today to invite your association to join in our Annual Your Health Your Way (Formerly, PS Walk, Run, Pole). As a seasonal resident on Lake Rosseau for 59 years, our family came to the cottage for decades, never thinking twice about local hospital care. That all changed June 2015. My husband became gravely ill, and his survival meant rushing to the West Parry Sound Health Centre. While I had been a great supporter of the Foundation, my husband became a grateful patient through the medical attention he received in the ICU. Now, our family is keen to give back in any way we can. This year, for the third year, I am chairing this Annual Walk Event reimagined as Your Health, Your Way celebrating the Rehab program at the West Parry Sound Health Centre. I’m asking you to join me in this awesome community event by either signing up your association as a team and/or forwarding this notice to your members.

You can sign up at Together we can raise the bar on fitness and celebrate healthy lifestyle choices while supporting local care where we all live, work and play. This year’s event is a hybrid model, for the month of May you can challenge yourself or your team to set your own goal to MOVE daily in your own way – all modes count for tracking: walking, running, biking, kayaking – Your choice, Your way! The goal is to move and track our kilometres daily while securing pledges along the way. Every day we move, we get healthier. Every pledge we gather, we can move closer to our goal of raising $150,000 to support the purchase of an upgraded Bone Mineral Density Unit. Join in the challenge throughout the month of May and strive to meet your fitness goals.

Then, mark your calendar to join us at one or all of four Community Walk Events across our region, starting at West Parry Sound Health Centre on May 1st, Rosseau Nursing Station on May 7th, Whitestone Nursing Station on May 17th, with the finale at Pointe au Baril Nursing Station on May 26th. The goal is to engage you, your family and friends to Move to forward as A Healthier Community. To learn more about how you can join us visit:

Sincerely, Brett
