The Hamilton Relay 2019
On Saturday, June 1, the Hamilton Health Sciences Regional Rehabilitation Centre hosted a Wheelchair Relay at Pier 4 Park. Teams arrived in bright costumes and ready to roll!
This event was jam-packed with fun activities for families including a Kids Colouring and Face Painting Station, a 50/50 raffle and lots of great prizes to be won. Everyone participating in the relay had the chance to try out a wheelchair, some for the first time. The aim of the game was simple – beat the competition!
With support from our participants, donors and valued sponsors, this event raised over $7,300 for SCIO and the Hamilton Region. We would like to thank all of our sponsors including Wynperle Law, Virk Law, The Refinery Wellness Centre, Ironworkers Local 736 and Motion Physio.
We want to extend a big thank you to the entire volunteer committee who ensured that this event ran smoothly and was a great success. Thank you to Amanda Snively, Diana Herrington, Jennifer New, Michelle Hannah, Michelle Read, Norma Spero, Rob Murphy, Ron Rattie, Rosemary Bellefeuille, and Tina Cowper.
Special thanks to Michelle Hannah, James Hannah and John Todd for the pictures included here.
