Heritage Community Fitness in Carleton Place donates $598.90 from staff led “two-hour spin & cardio challenge” and “learn to lift” events to the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) Foundation. The funds are directed towards the purchase of needed patient care equipment at the hospital.

“Since Heritage Fitness opened in 2007, we regularly hold events and workshops that raise funds for the Hospital Foundation”, says Redeana Villeneuve, Heritage Fitness General Manager. “Access to hospital care in our community is not something to be taken for granted… [so] we actively support the hospital in every way we can.”

To date, Heritage Community Fitness has donated over $54,000 to the CPDMH Foundation through annual donations and fundraising events. They host fitness-oriented fundraising events such as their two-hour spin challenge and health-related workshops on a variety of topics including mobility, weight lifting, and foam rolling.

The CPDMH Foundation is so very appreciative of Heritage Community Fitness’ support. “What a magnificent way to create awareness for our local hospital and to have fun at the same time!” states Robyn Arseneau, Executive Director of the CPDMH Foundation. “Thank you Heritage Fitness for hosting events to raise money for our local hospital and for working together to make our community a healthier place to live work and play!”
