Fun in the sun at Lyndhurst World Cup

News Archive
Promoting the benefits of therapeutic recreation was the focus of the Lyndhurst World Cup held on August 14, 2018 at Toronto Rehab’s Lyndhurst Center for Spinal Cord Rehabilitation.

This annual event brings patients, families, staff, volunteers and our community together to share in new experiences and the possibilities of participating in adapted sports, recreation and leisure activities. The fun filled day included activities such as bocce, handcycling, wheelchair basketball, seated Tai Chi, yoga and art. Participants also enjoyed a BBQ lunch and steel pan drum music.

In previous years, staff in the Spinal Cord Rehabilitation Program noticed much higher participation in therapeutic recreation following these games.

We thank our incredible sponsors for their contributions to the event: Coloplast, Motion Specialties, Neinstein Lawyers, and Permobil. Proceeds are supporting therapeutic recreation programs at Lyndhurst Centre.
