Well, 2016 has (almost) come and gone! What a great year it was. We work hard as a team, we enrich each other’s lives, and coming together to celebrate all we have been through together is something we feel so lucky to he able to do. Plus, eating copious amounts of the best food ever never hurts either! Here is a summary of this year’s festivities!
This year the party took place at Delanghe Chiropractic & Health…and it was PACKED:
The coaches were HONOURED to receive 3 amazing gifts from their teammates:
(1) An amazing custom team poster photoshopped by Howie!
(2) An amazing set of team banners so we can represent with pride at races! Here’s one of them being presented at the party:
(3) Very cool official H+P Coach sweaters for Sean and Gill- an idea masterminded by Janice:
We also were excited to have our team vote for and award our MVPs for the 2016 season!
For the women, Val Hobson was our MVP! Robyn and Erin were runners up. Well earned by all three, thanks for helping to make our team better for all!
On the men’s side, Dave Rutherford walked away with the MVP award. Sam- the Whiz Kid- came in 2nd, while Jordan and Nick continue to battle to the death tying for 3rd!
H+P was very excited to announce new club standards with special awards depending on which ones, and how many you hit! Check them our and follow our progress HERE.
A huge congrats to Dave Rutherford for being awarded with the first achievement standard ever by hitting the masters men’s B-Standard in the marathon when he broke 3 hours in Chicago:
Also, Coach Sean was very excited to announce that teammate and physiotherapist, Kayla Ng will be joining the Delanghe Chiropractic & Health team in 2017! Here she is with her holiday relay team (second from the left)!
The food was, without a doubt, the BEST spread any of us have ever experienced. Mix competition, good eaters, and great chefs, and great things happen!
Of course, there can be only ONE winner, and this year’s champion is ED SHRIGLEY for is insanely creative, “partially finished” cake!
A H+P holiday party will never be complete without the epic holiday relay challenge- which finishes only when all the eggnog has been chugged! This year, a controversial win was achieved by TEAM WHEELHOUSE: Adam, Trev, Dave and Pat. Will there dominance ever be truly accepted until they defend in 2016?
We of course have to thank our amazing friends at New Balance Canada for the support at this party and all year long! Huge props to Dave and Robbie for the help specifically with this party. It just wouldn’t have been the same without the various prizes for our award winners, the awesome photo booth and other pieces of NB swag.

Thanks for a great year team. We can’t wait keep this positive momentum rolling into 2017!
