Hip Hip Hooray!
Hip Hip Hooray!, the signature fundraising campaign of the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation, is a walk for bone and joint health held from coast-to-coast between September 26 - 30.
In 2011, after a three year pause, Hip Hip Hooray! returned in a new and exciting format to ensure more of your dollars raised went towards creating resources and providing patient support. This new format proved to be successful and significantly reduced overhead. Again this year, Participants will be counting their steps to raise money, enabling the Foundation to focus less time on administration of the event and more time on how funds raised will help thousands of Canadians suffering from orthopaedic conditions.
Upon registration and with a donation of $25, Participants will be provided with a pedometer to count their steps.
Proceeds are invested into local communities through the production and distribution of educational materials and resources. These materials will be made available to orthopaedic patients through hospitals, surgeon offices, physiotherapy clinics, joint assessment clinics, via nurses, through mail and online. Funds will also be used to expand local services of the Ortho Connect Peer Support Program.
Since its inception in 1992, Hip Hip Hooray! has raised more than $18 million toward the maintenance and restoration of bone and joint health, mobility and function.
Hip Hip Hooray! is an important opportunity for you to set a goal, get moving, and to give back to others.
