The medical school at Western University, founded in 1881, has produced some of the best physicians, academics and researchers in the entire world. Each year, over 600 freshmen enter the doors of Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry with the hope of emerging, four years later with an extraordinary career ahead of them.
Last week, the graduating class of 2013 arrived at Rotholme Women’s & Family Shelter with a cheque representing four years of fundraising efforts. In addition to an incredible workload including a multitude of labs, lectures and practical training, these med students committed time and energy to raising money for a charity. We are so grateful they chose Rotholme Women’s & Family Shelter.
“We organized many activities to raise funds including textbook sales, tournaments, bake sales and donations from members of the class,” writes Brenna A. M. Velker, PhD and fourth year medical student at Schulich School of Medicine. “Pretty much the whole class participated in at least a few of these events and everyone is really excited that we were able to help, even a bit!”
We are extraordinarily thankful to the class of 2013 for a donation totaling approximately $4,000. These funds will help Rotholme continue to provide services and support to women and families in need.
As a new class of hopeful freshmen pass through the doors of Schulich in September, we hope they’ll choose to support Mission Services of London once again.
