Richmond, BC - On May 28th Climate sponsored the Richmond, BC chapter of the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation's annual Hip Hip Hooray! walk-a-thon to celebrate mobility among orthopaedic patients.

This year’s event marked the 15th anniversary of the Hip Hip Hooray! campaign. Since 1992, thousands of Canadians across the Canada have walked together to show off their new mobility and to raise almost $18 million dollars for improved bone and joint health.

Climate was approached to become involved in the Richmond, BC event and did not hesitate when asked to become an in-kind sponsor of the event. "We see the event as a great opportunity to give back to our community as well as celebrate people being active, getting outside and beating the odds" said Mark Lavigne, Climate's Director of Sales and Marketing.

The event proved to be a big success and a record number of walkers, sponsors and pledges were raised to help further the research and development of orthopaedic care in Canada.
