My target 300000 Steps

I’m in for the cause… my health!

This year, our team of rehab and diabetes education professionals are going to “walk the walk”! Our incredible team spends our days helping others set and achieve their goals - now we need your help to achieve ours! 

Individually, we will be setting personal goals and working to achieve them both for our wellness and that of our heath centre. I have personally pledged to walk no less than 300,000 steps in the month of May.

This year, the Walk, Run, Pole for cardiac care hopes to buy the 7 needed replacement defibrillators located throughout the Health Centre.  There are 9 required in total, but last year’s event banked the money for 2!  It is SO important to be able to offer high quality care close to home; it saves lives.

I’m hoping you will join me.  Your pledge means we are getting closer to keeping hearts pumping!

Day 13

Friday 14th May
No selfie today because my step goal was met while running around the hospital and was followed by me assuming a spot on the couch with little further movement once home. Up and down many stairs, running from unit to unit and down the up/hill to our ambulance base… On May 13th I had the privilege to organize and supervise the administration of vaccines to patients awaiting LTC (second doses) and anyone over 40 who had not yet received a first dose at the WPSHC. It was such an inspiring experience to see how many people in our small community are committed to helping others. I had housekeepers stop me to advocate for patients they bonded with while doing their work, familles and neighbours call to see if we had vaccines for their loved ones and help from pharmacy, electronic health records, occupational health, nursing, long term care and community paramedicine teams to make this happen. It truly takes a community to end a pandemic! This one is dedicated to the people of Parry Sound
