Mississauga, January 13, 2022: The Bayshore Foundation for Empowered Living, the charitable arm of Bayshore HealthCare, recently received the Outstanding Community Partner Award from Cystic Fibrosis Canada for its contribution to their Western Ontario chapter.

Bayshore is committed to Cystic Fibrosis Canada because for them it’s personal. A member of the Bayshore Therapy and Rehab team in Windsor, Christopher Beausoliel, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of five. Now, as an adult, Christopher speaks regularly to raise awareness of this disease.

The Bayshore Foundation has partnered with Cystic Fibrosis Canada Western Ontario chapter for three years. During this time, it has provided matching funds to one of its largest fundraising walk teams, Mission: Possible.  Any donation made during the walk through the Bayshore Foundation was matched up to 50%. This year, Bayshore grew their maximum match contribution to $20,000 in support of the walk and with their support, have assisted in raising over $59,000 since 2019.

The award was accepted by Cheryl Metcalfe, Area Director for Bayshore Therapy and Rehab in Windsor. “Bayshore Therapy & Rehab Windsor chose Cystic Fibrosis Canada as our charity because of Chris,” remarked Cheryl at the recent award ceremony. “We do this all for Chris and his family and our ability to provide generously is because of the hard work of his family and especially his mom Ann-Marie.”
