Rescue 7 Weekly Review: June 8th-14th
On Monday, June 8th, Rescue 7 was in attendance at the Hockey Helps the Homeless (HHTH) kick-off event at Marca in Markham. Represented by John Collie, Rescue 7 are a proud sponsor to HHTH – an organization aimed at using Canada’s love of hockey to end homelessness. “You’ll play alongside some of hockey’s greatest players, like Theo Fleury, Kirk McLean, Vincent Damphousse, and Olympic gold-medalists Caroline Ouellette, Marie-Philip Poulin, and many more, while raising money to help end homelessness in your community,” as stated on their website (link above). Beginning in 1996, HHTH has now spread to major cities across Canada, including Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, London, Barrie and Kitchener-Waterloo.
Members of the Rescue 7 team joined in the celebrations for the opening of the Rocking Horse Ranch in Richmond Hill on June 10th. Our trained professionals provided peace of mind and safety for all. The new Rocking Horse Ranch park on Hunting Ridges Drive includes an unlit double tennis court, full basketball court, senior play area with swings (5-12+ years), adult fitness equipment, shade structure, a walking loop and space for passive recreation. The ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Mayor and Members of Council will took place at 6:30 p.m.
Have you been following the Pan Am torch trail? If so, you’ve been following Rescue 7, too! The Ontario Provincial Police have been travelling alongside the Pan Am torchbearers to ensure their safety during their trip, and they have been carrying Rescue 7 defibrillators. But as the Caledon Enterprise said, everyone at Rescue 7 hopes they never have to be used. John Collie was quoted as saying, “It’s there just in case.” We are so proud to be helping our athletes stay safe as they make Toronto and Canada proud. Visit theOrangeville Citizen for more information on how we are involved.
We are proud to announce our sponsorship for Polo For Heart, taking place this June 19th, 20th and 21st. Raising $25,000 in 1979, Polo For Heart has since raised over $6 million for heart disease and stroke treatment and research. Celebrating its 36th anniversary, Polo For Heart 2015 will be giving proceeds to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, and to the Southlake Foundation. If you are attending, make sure to drop by the Rescue 7 tent to say hi!
