For years already the White and Yellow Cross Foundation and Rotary Sunrise have a strong relationship, resulting in both parties working together on projects. When Rotary Sunrise contacted the care foundation with the request for a funding project, a topic was easily selected.
 
Recently the Rotary Sunrise Club presented the White and Yellow Cross Foundation with a generous donation to purchase important exercise equipment.
 
For years already the White and Yellow Cross Foundation and Rotary Sunrise have a strong relationship, resulting in both parties working together on projects. When Rotary Sunrise contacted the care foundation with the request for a funding project, a topic was easily selected.
 
The White and Yellow Cross Foundation has a paramedical department that includes a gym that caters to all its residential and outpatient clients. One piece of equipment is in such high demand, that clients wait in line to use it. The Sci-Fit bike can accommodate clients with many different disabilities to enable them to do effective cardio exercises. Even sitting in your own wheelchair you can “ride” this bike, for example with your hands only. This bike caters to clients in the nursing home, the physical rehabilitation center and those from Sister Basilia Center who may need it.
 
As the Sci-Fit is pricey, White and Yellow Cross Foundation (WYCF) was in need of sponsorship and Rotary Sunrise heard this call!
Two events were organized by the club to raise enough funds. The first one was a flea market, held at the Air Lekkerbek Restaurant, drawing large crowds and many sellers and buyers. About half of the required funds were raised during this lively event in the spring of 2014.
 
The creative minds of Rotary Sunrise then organized a beautiful Opera event, Les Miserables. The Opera was shown in the Megaplex Movie Theater, drawing a crowd of Opera lovers and connoisseurs. With a tasteful catering the evening was lauded a success by the guests, who enjoyed the unique showing.
 
With the funds fully collected to order and ship the Sci-Fit to the White and Yellow Cross Foundation, a festive presentation was made to Petra Peut, physical therapist and coordinator of the paramedical services and rehabilitation. Together with the White and Yellow Cross Foundation Operations Manager, she happily received the donation and toured the Rotary guests around the facilities.
