Jeanie Bezdan and Rick Tkach, founders and owners of Royal City Health & Manual Therapy, are as passionate about caring for their community as they are about their clients’ health.
“Our tag line is ‘Helping you and your family since 1995,’” says Jeanie. “Fundraising for organizations that also support families is a natural fit for us. It is a way for our ‘help’ to extend outside of the clinic to the surrounding community.”
Conveniently located at the Royal City Centre in New Westminster, Royal City Health has a full team of health professionals, all supportive of the clinic’s fundraising efforts.
“We have six physiotherapists, six massage therapists, chiropractor, dietitian, and clinical counsellor,” Jeanie notes. “Also, our front staff is the ‘heart’ of our business, both donating to causes themselves and taking on the job of advertising and donation collections.”
Royal City Health supports organizations such as B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Empty Stocking Fund, and the local food bank.
“We want to support families that are having trouble making ends meet, as well as families with children experiencing illness,” Jeanie says. “We like to choose local organizations with minimal administration costs, so the bulk of the donations go directly to those in need.”
To maximize the effect of its fundraising efforts, Royal City Health & Manual Therapy matches each donation it receives.
“This drives the fundraising effort,” Jeanie explains, “and also makes it exciting to see how much we have raised together.”
Clients also get involved in donating to the causes chosen by the clinic.
“Our clinic is highly visible,” Jeanie notes, “with over 400 clients per week coming through our doors. They’re very supportive of our fundraising efforts, which makes our endeavours even easier.”
