The Revelstoke District Health Foundation has been a past financial supporter of this well-received program., In 2022, the RDHF contributed $2,500 towards the delivery of this service.
Some quotes from participants:
“My strength and stamina have noticeably improved, and I had fun with a great group of people”
“I learned to sit down in a chair without plopping down, this feels safer now”
“I am much more confident with my balance which makes it easier to get out of the house.”
