Golf tournament supports life-changing care

Three health-care organizations that provide life-changing care will benefit from Menkes Developments Ltd.’s 20th annual golf charity golf classic, which raised $160,000.

West Park Healthcare Centre provides specialized rehabilitation; complex continuing care, long-term care and community health services helping individuals manage difficult health challenges like lung disease, diabetes, stroke, amputation and musculoskeletal issues arising from a life-changing event or illness.

Kensington Health provides a diverse range of services, including long-term, hospice and community care, cancer screening, ophthalmology and eye tissue processing for transplant. Toronto Rehabilitation Institute helps people overcome the challenges of disabling injury, illness or age-related health conditions to live active, healthier and more independent lives.

“Toronto Rehab Institute is a place that enables patients who have suffered from illness or injury, achieve the best possible outcomes,” President and CEO Cindy Yelle says in a statement. “We help people regain their health and well-being…We help them return to their lives. Thank you Menkes for your continued support and for believing in the potential of Toronto Rehab and the community that we serve.”

Menkes is a fully-integrated real estate company involved in the construction, ownership and management of office, industrial, retail and residential properties. Its charity golf classic has raised more than $1.46 million since its inception. “Menkes is more than just a city builder. For decades, we have proudly supported a wide range of health initiatives in the communities in which we operate our business,” said Steven Menkes, President, Low Rise Division.

“These particular organizations were selected based on the fact that they provide life-changing care to help patients facing debilitating health challenges reclaim their lives. This is particularly meaningful to Menkes, since the golf tournament was established in honour of a former Menkes employee.”
