From West 4th Physio associate Jen Macpherson
The Second Annual Bagel Chase is on the week of February 1 – 7, 2014.
West 4th Physiotherapy is participating in the event again this year. The Bagel Chase proceeds go towards Backpack Buddies, which is the primary initiative of Community First Foundation. (communityfirstfoundation.ca) This is a Vancouver based charity working to ensure food security for underprivileged children in the local community. Backpack Buddies delivers back packs of food to down town east side schools. The deliveries are on Fridays to work on getting food home for kids on the weekends. The reality is some kids are going home to no food or meager amounts on the weekends.
The West 4th team has had a ball running this cold, sunny week, knowing they are helping with such an invaluable program. Thanks to Chuck Cosman for organizing the event again this year.
We plan to be back chasing the bagel again next year!
