GIVE in support of pain-free mobility, a message from our CEO

Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation

As the dog days of summer arrive, we are filled with thoughts of vacations and outdoor activities along with some well-deserved rest. It’s a time to share with family and friends and to count our blessings.

A friend of mine was showing off to his better half on roller skates. He attempted a move reserved for the much younger and promptly broke his ankle. Surgery and a cast later, he has the next 12 weeks to look forward to being reminded of how fast life can change.

My friend’s accident serves as a reminder that there are far too many of our friends, family members and fellow Canadians who are unable to enjoy the summer days because they are waiting for surgeries, recovering from injuries, or coping with chronic challenges. Their struggles extend to their loved ones and care givers too, and we hold them in our thoughts every day.

Please take a moment to donate to our summer campaign. Your support makes all the difference in providing care and advancing research that vastly improves lives.

Thank you for giving.

Todd Charlebois
Chief Executive Officer
