Toronto, ON August 21, 2019 - Lifemark Health Group is excited to announce that it has entered into a multi-year agreement to be a Founding Sponsor and the official sport physiotherapy provider of the HFX Wanderers FC, a professional soccer club based in the heart of Halifax that’s currently playing its first season in the Canadian Premier League.

Efforts are led by Danielle McNally, a physiotherapist with a certificate in Sport Physiotherapy at Lifemark’s Canada Games Centre location who’s now the lead clinician for the Wanderers. Assisting her is physiotherapist Alex Marshall, who has experience working as a trainer for several soccer and hockey teams in Nova Scotia.

Lifemark’s clinicians are experienced, passionate and highly skilled,” said Shannon Brown, Lifemark’s Area Manager for the Atlantic region. “When talented clinicians work alongside elite athletes, incredible things can be accomplished, so this partnership represents for us an opportunity to showcase our team’s know-how and expertise. We’ve already received very positive feedback for our interventions and I know that we’ll continue to go above and beyond to support the Wanderers, so the future looks bright and incredibly promising for this partnership. Go Wanderers!”
