Thomson, Rogers’ Showcase of Courage

Posted September 30, 2016

This year Thomson, Rogers proudly celebrates its 80th anniversary.

In fondly looking back over the years, we often recall the many clients and friends who’ve touched our hearts and inspired us with their courage and perseverance. To honour our clients and recognize their achievements in reclaiming their lives, following traumatic injuries, we’re helping them give back to the health care community that helped them throughout their recoveries.

We will be donating a total of $80,000, in honour of our 80 years as a firm, to various charities and groups that have helped our clients and their families.

As part of the process we invited past clients to publicly share their stories, and in doing so we’re making a charitable donation in reference to each client story. Of those stories, we selected five very inspirational client stories and matched them with the group primarily instrumental in their success:

  1. Scott Parkinson (Brain Injury Association Peterborough Region)
  2. Anthony Aquan-Assee (Ontario Brain Injury Association)
  3. Tina Manousos (Spinal Cord Injury Ontario)
  4. Fere Humble (West Park Healthcare Centre)
  5. Zoe Gottwald (War Amps of Canada CHAMP Program)

Now we’re asking for your help. We want the larger community to decide how our $80,000 anniversary donation is allocated. We have posted these client stories on our website, and various social media sites,
to encourage you to decide how to allocate our donation.

Watch the videos, read the stories and vote for the one that inspires you the most. Regardless of the winning story, each charity will be receiving a donation, so everyone is a winner!

The 80th Anniversary campaign runs through to November 4th. We will be announcing the results at the Toronto Acquired Brain Injury Conference at the Marriott Hotel in Downtown Toronto, on November 11th.
