Rita’s Braveheart Adventure

From Durham Region Women at Pickering, Ontario on 17/08/2019

On Saturday, August 17, 2019 four of our Club members, Sharon, Kathy, Nuala, and Joan hopped on the bus for Rita’s Braveheart Adventure Road Trip! This road trip took us to Santa’s Village in Bracebridge Ontario with the Pediatric Program from Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre. It was a day full of games & prizes on the bus, cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus, Lunch with Santa himself, a dance party river cruise, and rides within the Village! Even with the rain the fun and enthusiasm never wavered!


Rita Ciani organizes this Road Trip for the kids in the Pediatric Program as her way of giving back to Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre that helped her through her first cancer diagnosis and continues to do so to this day as she continues to battle her own cancer. Rita’s goal is to help the children and their families forget for a day and just enjoy being Kids!  Her massive candy bar is a huge hit with the children (not so much for mom & dad).

CPC, Durham Region Women not only provide volunteers for the day but also was able to provide a $1000.00 towards this worthwhile event.

Looking forward to our next Road Trip Adventure with Rita’s Bravehearts!
