Massage Therapy Students Give Back to the Community

Massage students helped out with charity hockey game

Edmonton AB - April 27, 2011 - Massage Therapy students at the CDI College Edmonton North campus gave their time and expertise to the World’s Longest Hockey Game, held from February 10-21, 2011. The game, one of the most successful Alberta Cancer Foundation events, always captures the hearts and pride of Canadians. This year, the hopes of raising $1 million for the Cross Cancer Institute generated donations from across the continent and rallied CDI’s massage students to lend a hand.

On top of donating $2,000 to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, the massage therapy students donated their skills and time to support the Foundation’s event. The students worked a range of shifts over the course of the game volunteering in the massage clinic. This effective contribution was much appreciated by players. Relieving their pain, students helped them support those long hours of game. And their help was even more crucial when the temperature sunk to -35 C to fight the cold. This year’s game was played by 40 players for 241 consecutive hours over a period of 10 days.

Not only did the massage students demonstrate their professional skills, but more than anything, they demonstrated their generous spirit.
