Terry Fox Run (September):

Each year, the students, residents, and faculty members from the Faculty of Medecine join for the Annual Terry Fox Run. This is a non-competitive fun run where individuals, families, and groups can walk or run one to ten kilometres to celebrate the courage and resilience of a Canadian hero. The goal is to bring together students and faculty members to support our community, promote health and physical activity, foster leadership and teamwork, and unite students and healthcare professionals in the battle against cancer.

PT Day and OT Week (September & October):

World Physical Therapy Day and Occupational Therapy Day takes place every September 8th, and October 27th respectively. To celebrate these special days, students gather on McGill University’s downtown campus to promote the Physical and Occupational Therapy profession through informative activities that engage other students on campus.

Occupational Balance Month (November):

This specific event is aimed to bring awareness on the importance of self-care, both physical and psychological. During the month of November, fellow POTUS members organize workshops. Some examples include zumba, yoga, drawing classes, and sessions of mindfulness. The goal is to provide options in which students can de-stress, and find balance between school/work and having time for oneself. 

 

Charity Event: Bowling Night (Fall Semester):

POTUS hosts a bowling night for students to raise funds for a charity organization to be determined. The main event consists of a bowling tournament in which students will compete against each other in their groups. This event is a great opportunity for students to give back to the community.
