TR Awareness Month
February 2021

Therapeutic recreation: Unmasking the possibilities

TRO is pleased to present Members with our 2021 TR Awareness Month toolkit full of valuable resources to help you plan your own TR Awareness Month advocacy events and activities.  

Celebrate TR with COVID-compliant event/activity ideas 

We recognize that celebrating and hosting TR awareness events or activities will require a different approach for 2021, as we continue to follow COVID-related precautions around social gatherings and host virtual events. Our toolkit resources have been updated with virtual event suggestions to reflect that reality. 

This year's updated collection of great resources includes a PowerPoint presentation about TR you can share with clients, employers and your community, a TR infographic that you can share both online or by printing and circulating to your contacts, as well as our updated 28 Day TR Challenge and Calendar – a fun way to help you redefine what TR means to you and your community every day during the month of February. 

Share on social media! 

As you are planning your TR Awareness Month activities and events, please remember to share your happenings with your TRO community! Share highlights from your events on TRO’s TwitterFacebook or Instagram channels using the hashtags


We will be retweeting and sharing!

Many thanks to Monica Almas, R/TRO of the Membership Services Committee, along with Jessica Korchowiec, R/TRO DIP and Kandice Hurlock, R/TRO, and to Mohawk College TR student Katie Jager for all their work on the 2021 TR Awareness Month toolkit.
