"Backs in Motion" a Big Hit at CMCC
Dr. Herbert Lee and CMCC President Dr. Jean Moss were off to the races at this year's "Backs in Motion" walk/run event.
Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) raised more than $50,000 through its annual "Backs in Motion" campaign, a run/walk event designed to bring in funding for chiropractic education.
CMCC's Board of Governors collected $25,000, nearly half of the total proceeds raised for the contest. Dr. Doug Brown, a longtime supporter of CMCC, took home the top prize for pledges collected by a run/walk participant, garnering over $4,000 in pledges. Dr. Katherine Wood-Bastedo won the grand prize, a trip for two to Orlando, Florida.
One of the highlights of the day occurred when Dr. Herbert Lee, a founding member of CMCC, "challenged" CMCC President Dr. Jean Moss to a race in the 5k walk. Each contestant received a few unexpected gifts to "help" them during the race: a heavy wheelbarrow for Dr. Moss, and a mountain bike for Dr. Lee. It was a close battle, but Dr. Lee and his bicycle prevailed in the end.
