Woodingford Lodge getting ready to roll & stroll

Residents, families, staff, and the Woodingford community will participate in a “Superhero” themed event in support of the Woodstock Hospital Foundation.


Woodingford Lodge residents, families, staff, and community will spring into action next week for the annual Roll & Stroll event in support of the Woodstock Hospital Foundation.

Roll & Stroll will take place on June 7, with Woodingford residents partnering up with family members, friends, volunteers, and Woodingford staff. Teams will take a lap around the Woodingford Lodge facility in Woodstock, and are encouraged to raise pledges for the Woodstock Hospital Foundation. This year, Woodingford Lodge is asking participants to dress up as their favourite superhero – as we are all heroes.

The event promises to have a festive atmosphere with costumes, prizes and treats! Local media are invited to attend the event to take photos and speak with those involved in making the roll & stroll happen.

Friday, June 7, 10:30 a.m.

     WHERE:

Woodingford Lodge Woodstock
300 Juliana Drive, Woodstock



Comment


Corrie Fransen, Director, Woodingford Lodge

“While some of our residents might not have the physical ability to participate in the annual Dairy Capital Run, we know they enjoy the thrill of the race. So our staff thought it would be fun to host our own event where we can get out in the fresh air and enjoy a roll or stroll around our building. As we go around, we can wave to our neighbours at the Woodstock Hospital and show support for the care they provide to our community.”
