For The Health Of It is an event that has been taking place for the past 30+ years. It’s a night of comedic relief through a (friendly) competition between the Schools of Health Professions at Dalhousie University. Each school puts on a skit and a dance that aims to educate the audience on inter-professionalism and health issues at hand, all while making you laugh. The schools also compete to fundraise the most money for a local deserving charity. The schools collect points for their skits/dances and funds raised, and at the end of the night 1 school is crowned winners of FTHOI while a deserving local charity gets the loot.
In 2015, FTHOI raised $54, 000 for Katrin’s Karepackage!
