Congratulations Team Bernier!

This past Sunday, June 7th, 2015, a passionate group of students, staff, and faculty from Physiology and Pharmacology, and other departments, participated in the annual Walk to Fight Arthritis to raise funds for The Arthritis Society in support of the over 4.6 million Canadians that live with arthritis.  Each year the team, named Team Bernier, walks in memory of Dr. Suzanne Bernier in honor of her contributions and commitment to arthritis research that continues to act as an inspiration to many.

With the help of generous friends and colleagues, the team raised $12,000 this year and was ranked the #5 team in Canada as well as the top community team. But perhaps most exciting of all, Dr. Frank Beier fulfilled his promise of dyeing his hair purple upon reaching the $10,000 goal (refer to our Flickr gallery for pictures!).

The team would like to thank everyone for their continuous support, as well as the generous donations that made purple Frank a reality!
