Join us on Sunday, September 20th and Cycle 4 St. Joe's. Together, we'll ride as West End Warriors because St. Joe's needs us more than ever. As Co-Captains, Dr. Peter Menikefs and I have decided to build on past year's successes of the Dr. Jennifer Bender Block Room and Orthopaedic Equipment and Instruments, and expand our fundraising vision. This year we want to build the largest and most ambitious team ever - Team Surgery! We hope to recruit everyone who contributes to the entire peri-operative pathway for our surgical patients, and everyone that cares about the amazing surgical work done at St. Joseph's Health Centre.
All front-line workers are heroes in our eyes, but it is fitting that in honour of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the World Health Organization has declared 2020 the "Year of the Nurse and Midwife". Therefore we have identified a number of important fundraising goals to support our peri-operative Nurses and Midwifes and to improve their Safety and Wellness.
We appreciate first-hand how important it is to have great surgical care in our west-end community. If you cannot join us, please feel free to make a donation by clicking on the "Donate" bar. Thank you for standing up to show your support for those on the surgical frontlines.
On behalf of Team Surgery, Thank you!
