January to June for the Janeway

As most of you have already seen in the clinics, we have been fundraising with a different event each month to raise money for the Janeway. We just wanted to update you on some of the events gone by and some of the ones still to come! Our goal is $5000.00 and all events will give clients and staff an opportunity to donate so if you would like to help us reach our goal keep checking back on how you can contribute.

January

  • Since we missed the Jamarama day last October we decided to have our own PJ day in January so, all the staff wore their comfiest PJ’s to work. We got a few weird looks at first, some people thought we forgot to get dressed this morning but, then realized what it was for. We had a great day and managed to raise close to $200!

February:

  • As many other workplaces and schools did we participated in Pink Shirt Day for anti-bullying and our staff provided pink themed treats for our clients who donated. Here are some pictures from such a great day! We raised close to another $100 at this event, a huge thank you to our staff and clients for their support so far!

March:

  • Is it even March if you don’t do something St. Paddy’s themed? Well we don’t think so! This month we sold tickets on an incredible basket of goodies!
  • We sold over 900 tickets and raised nearly $1500 towards our campaign!
  • This project was made such a success by our clients and staff and we can’t thank you all enough, stay tuned for more opportunities!

April:

  • This month we partnered with out neighbours Bespoke Cycle for a Ride to Raise. This ride was sold out and some of our team went to check it out for themselves, see some of the fun they had below!
  • With the $10 donation for admission and tickets we sold on a goodie bag we raised over $450!
  • We are slowly but surely reaching our campaign goal. What will May bring? Stay tuned to find out, it’s gonna be a good one!

May:

  • Who wants a chance to pie their therapist in the face? Yeah we thought so, so we are going to give you a chance to do just that. For a few weeks in May we will be selling tickets on the opportunity to pie your therapist.
  • We don’t have all the details just yet but stay tuned to our social media for updates!

June:

  • June 1 and 2 is the Annual Janeway Telethon. Tune in to see some of our staff volunteer on the phones and find out if we hit our $5000 goal!

Sock It For Sick Kids And Their Families

On Friday October 12, our staff participated in the Sock IT for Sick Kids and their Families day to support the Ronald McDonald House.

We are proud to say that each and every one of our staff members was involved in this day and we all had a lot of fun showing off our socks, here are some pictures to prove it!

Not only did all our staff members participate but, a lot of our clients got involved by donating money on that day. We want to thank all of you who contributed towards the Ronald McDonald House, our donation cans were filled to the brim at the end of the day.

We are so grateful to be able to support such an incredible initiative and we can’t wait to join in again next year!

Food Drive

Our clinics have been collecting non-perishable food and hygiene items for the last couple weeks. This past weekend, Saturday October 13, we encouraged our staff to come alongside the Northwest Rotary Club and the students of Prince of Whales Collegiate to help restock the shelves at the Salvation Army Food Bank after this Thanksgiving season.

The weather was typical St. John’s rain, drizzle, and fog but, we had a great turnout and a lot of fun!

Our team was in the Clovelly area of town and the people we interacted with were so kind and generous in their giving.

 

We want to extend a huge thank you to the people who donated items at our clinics throughout the weeks leading up to the big day and individuals who started a collection site at your own place of business. Your contributions will help a lot of people!

Worlds’s Curling in Edmonton

Our physiotherapist, Liv, and massage therapist, Kate, had an adventure being a part of Team Canada at the Worlds in Curling this year. Looking after Team Gushue during the Brier they were asked to come to Edmonton to make sure our favourite curlers were healthy and performing to their fullest potential. 

Team Canada outranked the rest of the world, including Liv’s native land Norway, and came back to the island as World Champions. Here is a few pictures of their trip with Team Canada.

Two Important Announcements!

We moved one location and shortened our name!

After 38 years of knowing the clinic as Therapeutic Services Ltd, we’ve shortened our name to TSL Physio. It is less of a tongue twister and easier to remember. 

And after 22 years at Highland Drive, Daniel and Liv bought a new space that we made our home on 55 White Rose Drive. Our Churchill Square clinic remains the same, but the Highland drive crew is now enjoying a new bright and beautiful clinic right next to RONA. 

There will be a grand opening as soon as the dust settles, and we are thrilled with the new space. A large bright rehab gym, 11 beautifully decorated private treatment rooms with optional surround sound music, amazing staff that always make the clinic so special and easy parking right in front of the building. Have a look for us on White Rose Drive, and feel free to pop in to say “Hi!” 🙂
