Cardiac Ski Day

This year our Cardiac Ski Day was held at Devil's Glen Country Club, on Friday February 20th 2009, and it was a great success. The day was sunny and bright and the hills were in great shape. After an excellent breakfast donated by Tim Hortons, Gordon Foods, Tofutti , Metro of Collingwood, Central Epicure, Kristapsons, and All Seas Fisheries our participants took to the hills for a full day of excellent skiing and a stop only for lunch, again provided by our generous donors.

We wish to thank our Guests who, by their generous purchase of raffle and 50/50 draw tickets, will help to support Cardiac Rehabilitation and various children's charities supported by the Toronto Academy of Dentistry.
