Residents step up for PARC Project

During February, the residents of the Views at St. Joseph’s Hospital strapped on pedometers, and accumulated more than 90,000 steps — enough to climb up one side of Mount Washington and down the other.

All residents celebrated their efforts with a post-event party.

Staff from the therapy services and activities departments, along with the residents, are determined to carry on raising funds for the PARC Project. The Physical Activation and Recreation Centre will be a building expansion to increase their existing exercise area, which is much too small.

Their efforts have brought in some significant fundraising with charity and corporate donations along with the Legacy of Life Wall, and most recently, the Have a Heart dinner theatre production Feb. 11.

Much gratitude is felt by the residents of the Views for these donations, but the Push for the Parc continues.

Any donations for this worthy cause would be much appreciated.

Contact the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation at 250-890-3046 to find out how you can help.
