The Need In Our Community

In Manitoba, half the adult population lives with a chronic disease such as arthritis, diabetes, or asthma. Research shows that regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle can play a significant role in preventing diseases and chronic conditions and could save billions in health care costs.

About the Reh-Fit Centre

Every day at the Reh-Fit Centre, we see the powerful effect that exercise and a healthy lifestyle can have on people of all ages. From boosting energy and losing weight to eliminating pain and reducing the use of medication, the Reh-Fit offers a new prescription for health that delivers lasting physical, mental, and emotional benefits.

As sedentary lifestyles become increasingly common, the health of individuals in our community suffers and demand for our services continues to grow. To deliver community programs and ensure accessibility, the Reh-Fit Centre and the Reh-Fit Foundation hold special events to raise funds for:

  • Creating new programs to prevent or manage chronic diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, cancer, mental illness, heart disease, and others,
  • Ensuring greater access to programs and services by providing financial assistance based on individual need,
  • Keeping program fees accessible to the broader community, and
  • Expanding our community education offerings such as health screening clinics, assessments, and information sessions.

The Reh-Fit Centre and Foundation are registered charitable organizations.
