Oct 2012 - ‘Train the Trainer day’ a success, raises $1225 for Delta Hospice
Have you ever felt it would be gratifying to see your personal trainer sweat as hard as they make you sweat? Clients recently got a chance to do this at New Day Personal Training and Fitness and to raise funds for a local cause.
Last month, New Day hosted a unique fundraiser called ‘Train the trainer day’. Clients had a chance to put their trainer through the vigorous training exercises that they have been working through by making a donation to the Delta Hospice Society.
When asked how he came up with this interesting fundraising idea, owner Terry Day said ”This is an activity I have been involved with in the past with other organizations for different charities. We wanted a local community charity that we could support annually and felt the Delta Hospice Society would be a good fit.”
‘This was a really great idea for a fundraiser’, said Delta Hospice Executive Director, Nancy Macey. ‘We feel very fortunate to be chosen to receive the proceeds from this and hope everyone had a great workout that day.
The Delta Hospice Society operates the Harold & Veronica Savage Centre for Supportive Care and the Irene Thomas Hospice in Ladner and the Hospice Cottage Charity Shoppe in Tsawwassen.
The Centre for Supportive Care provides information and resources, individual and family counselling, group support, information on access to the hospice residence. Services are for individuals and families living with the diagnosis of cancer or other life limiting illness, are at end of life or have experienced loss following a death. For more information call 604-948-0660, visit www.deltahospice .org or the ‘Delta Hospice Society’ Facebook page.
