Sonia Varaschin was a very special person with passion for life. She was a compassionate nurse who invested every hour of her life helping other people through difficult times.

In August 2010 the shocking news arrived that our colleague and beloved friend was reported to be missing. A week later, her body was found and her death was officially declared a homicide.

Loosing a colleague and friend is a very difficult experience especially when it happens under such tragic circumstances. Finding a way to remember and establish a legacy for our loved one is important. We chose to host a Zumba (r) Fundraiser because of Sonia’s passion for dance.  Funds raised through this event will be donated to the Registered Nurses Foundation of Ontario for the purpose of establishing a scholarship in Sonia’s name.

Thank you for supporting us!!!
