What do you cherish most for your loved ones?
If you're like me, it's health and well-being, the foundation upon which everything else stands.
As a devoted member of the Reh-Fit Centre for the past 25 years, I've experienced firsthand the positive impact this organization has had on my family and our community.
My personal health wake-up call was seeing my dad pass away due to a heart attack at 59. My grandfather also died from heart failure at 60. The disease runs in my family.
I discovered the Reh-Fit Centre -- the ideal place to help.
A kind doctor told me, "Your health doesn't take a holiday. You can't just work for ten months and take two months off." That's why the dedicated staff and culture of Reh-Fit emphasize year-round self-care. It's full of warm, generous people. I've made friends for life there.
And at 72 years of age, Reh-Fit has kept me healthy.
The Centre has had a profound impact on more lives than just mine. And one particular story stands out.
About 25 years ago, someone's heart stopped, and he died on the Reh-Fit running track.
But here's the beautiful end to this story. The quick response of an on-site Reh-Fit doctor with a defibrillator brought the runner back to life.
This gentleman received 25 more years of life! And as you can imagine, his loved ones were so grateful.
This is just one example of how Reh-Fit makes a significant difference, offering our fellow community members a great facility, diverse services, and health and fitness advice along with leading research that will impact generations to come.
Reh-Fit saves more lives than you can imagine.
It’s a special health centre - not just a gym. Along with state-of-the-art equipment, it provides diverse services, health advice, and care for our community.
It’s why I decided to leave a gift in my Will to support the Reh-Fit Centre’s dedication to our community’s well-being. Naturally, I ensured my loved ones were well taken care of first, but supporting Reh-Fit’s mission to keep our community healthy was an easy decision. It gives me immense satisfaction to know that even after I’m gone, I’ll continue making a positive impact on people’s lives.
