CLOSING THE GAP HEALTHCARE GROUP AND OUTWARD BOUND CANADA DELIVER A
COMPLEMENTARY PLAN FOR IMPROVING LIVES
TORONTO, July 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Outward Bound Canada (OBC) and Closing
the Gap Healthcare Group (CTGHG) have announced that they are teaming
up in order to benefit more people, on both sides of the relationship.
Improving individual and community strength is a goal that OBC and CTGHG
have long been committed to. And so it was a natural fit when CTGHG and
OBC joined as partners. One current joint endeavor, Reach Beyond Fundraising Expeditions, sees every CTGHG participant in OBC adventurous excursions raise funds
for populations in transition (i.e. at-risk-youth, women survivors of
violence, etc.) so that they too can access a life-changing OBC trip.
As OBC Executive Director, Sarah Wiley, points out, "It really is a
great model for both organizations, and others looking at similar
partnerships. This relationship will give back at so many levels - to
our participants, to CTGHG staff, to both organizations, and to the
communities we both serve. We couldn't have asked for a better fit."
The President and CEO of CTGHG, Connie Clerici, states, "This unique
partnership will advance our complementary goals of enriching lives,
changing tomorrow, building resilience, and cultivating compassion."
