The Rehab Society believes that it is important to contribute to the community. Rehab students have a wealth of resources that, if harnessed, translate into great potential and ultimately have an immense impact on the community. In keeping with the Queen's legacy, rehab students will choose a fundraising goal each year.
In the 2017-2018 School year, the Rehabilitation Therapy Student Society raised money for Lunch By George, an organization giving meals to local families in need with an absolute comedy night.
In the 2012-2013 school year, the Rehabilitation Therapy Student Society raised money in support of the Jack Project, an organization dedicated to promoting mental health and wellness for youth in Canada.
If you know of a great organization that you feel the Rehab Society should support, please contact us.
Queen's students are renowned for their pride, enthusiasm, and devotion to their alma mater. One of the premiere ways that graduating students demonstrate these qualities is through the annual ThankQ student giving campaigns. Soon-to-be grads in each school and faculty select an initiative that is meaningful to them and that will be of particular benefit to future students. Students are then asked by their classmates to make a donation of any amount towards the class project.
Over the years, the Rehabilitation Society has organized student giving campaigns to benefit future students through the following class gifts:
