Thank You for Being There

May 27, 2020

Dear Rady JCC Friends,

We’re here for you while you can’t be here.

This has been the tagline of our Rady JCC Virtual Connect platform. It’s a simple concept. Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have made it our mandate to deliver ongoing content and virtual engagements for you. We also believe that consistent and transparent communication is critical during these trying times and continue to provide updates as we all push forward together.

And through it all, you’ve been there.

Thank you for your ongoing dedication, your commitment, and your compassion to Rady. Thank you for your understanding and your trust as we try to uphold our promise to our members.

Over the past two months we have received countless messages, texts, and phone calls from you with words of encouragement and love. We’ve heard stories about what the Rady means to so many of you; about how it’s more than just a fitness and aquatic facility; how it’s a part of your lives and your daily routines.

Two Fridays ago, the Premier of Manitoba released his government’s draft plans for Phase Two of their three-phase provincial reopening plan. This phase allows us the ability to recommence operations at our fitness and aquatic facility with set limitations and safety guidelines in place.

While no official date for Phase Two has been set, this announcement ushered in a flood of messages from you. Some filled with excitement, others with notes of hesitation; but no matter what, all were positive. Whatever you are feeling, when the time comes for us to open our doors again, know this: when you’re ready to come back, we’ll be ready to welcome you.

One more piece of positive news to share as we begin to see the light at the end of this tunnel: this morning, we officially opened our 2020 Rady Summer Day Camps registration. Due to heightened safety and social distancing restrictions, our 2020 camp offerings have changed slightly. You can find a full listing of our various day camps, pricing, and registration by clicking here.

As we move forward into June, there is no doubt going to be more positive news coming. And we will continue to update you, our members, and be here for you while you can’t be here.

But the truth is while we say we’re here for you while you can’t be here, throughout this pandemic you have been here for us when we’ve needed you most.

Warm regards,

Rob Berkowits
Executive Director
