The Reh-Fit Foundation was created in 1999 to support the mission of the Reh-Fit Centre by inspiring donations and stewarding both gifts and donors, thereby enhancing the health and well-being of our community. Exercise plays a significant role in preventing diseases and improving chronic conditions, enhancing brain function, and contributing to greater independence as we age. The Reh-Fit hosts a variety of events annually to help raise funds for the Centre, and we hold an Annual Giving Campaign each fall.
A gift to the Reh-Fit Foundation provides:
- Rehabilitation – offering state-of-the-art medical and exercise equipment for the safest, most effective exercise to help people get better every day.
- Prevention – providing leading-edge health and fitness programs at the Centre to help people prevent and manage chronic disease and live a healthier life.
- Accessibility – making memberships and programs accessible to the broader community.
- Research and Education – hosting research studies to advance health and wellness in our community, providing education for the growing number of people in the community who are challenged with health concerns, and hosting student placements from academic institutions to help students gain practical experience in their field of study.
Our registered charitable number is 87046 0540 RR0001.
