Workout to Conquer Cancer - 2020

Orchid Medical Clinic

 

Welcome to our Orchid Medical Clinic team page!

This May we're participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer to get moving and support BC Cancer patients! Our team is joining others across the province to move, no matter where we are, every single day of the month.

The team at Orchid Medical Clinic is participating in Workout to Conquer Cancer for three big reasons:

We understand how important it is to support cancer patients during these uncertain times. Fighting cancer is a demanding undertaking even under the best circumstances. However, during a global pandemic, this fight can become that much more stressful and difficult. The threat of the recent outbreak affects British Columbians across the province but cancer patients are at a higher risk for more serious outcomes of COVID-19. That is why it is imperative that we continue supporting our family and friends that are fighting cancer in the best ways we know how.

We know that a meaningful cause can keep us accountable to stay active when we are lacking motivation to keep our bodies moving. It can be difficult to keep the body active when our routines have been disrupted, our gyms have been closed, and our sports teams have been suspended. As a result, we have dedicated ourselves to Workout to Conquer Cancer to motivate ourselves to keep our bodies moving. With a committed team of caring individuals, Orchid Medical Clinic aspires to create a community that keeps us accountable and provide us inspiration to run, stretch, squat, walk, or dance every day!

Cancer has deeply affected us and our loved ones. One in two British Columbians are affected by cancer, that's why we've committed to move and raise funds for patients, survivors, and those we've lost. At Orchid Medical Clinic, our team has been dedicated to providing the highest quality of care for patients that are battling cancer and see the amount of courage it takes to face it head on. Our families and friends have been affected by cancer and it remains forever an important piece of our lives (see our personal bios for our stories). We want to show our patients and our loved ones that we are cheering for them.

This challenge is more than exercise, it's about a community that believes that we can make an impact, even from our homes. Whether we run, walk, stretch or squat, every move we make and dollar we raise will be in support of the 77,000 people facing cancer across British Columbia.

As we get ready to sweat our way through May for every patient who cannot, please show your support by making a donation to our team today.

Consider moving with us, and join our team! We can work out and fundraise together for this very important cause. Thank you!

Sincerely,
Orchid Medical Clinic Team
