Bridging the Gap

September 15th, 2016 by Chris Nock No comments »

Bridging the Gap is a community massage program that helps to foster connection between youth and seniors. Check out this film of a group of Dr. Kearney students visiting the Peace Villa residential care facility and showing the residents there the power of touch.

Bridging the Gap is a project presented by Christine Sutherland, RMT. The video was sponsored by Eagle Vision Productions and our local KFC, Rotary Club, Boston Pizza and Safeway.
We are looking forward to continuing this project at our school.
