The 2012 Kimmett Cup was another highly successful and truly uplifting event. In the end, $25,000 were raised to support the LINDSAY Virtual Human project.  We sincerely thank everybody who contributed to this fantastic success. We all had much fun and great memories of Lindsay Leigh.

We are particularly grateful for this year’s Kimmett Cup Co-Chairs: our appreciation goes to Jason Baserman,Joe MacLellan, and Reid Kimmett for all their dedication and hard work.

This was our announcement before the Cup:

The 2012 Kimmett Cup is another far reaching and fun event for the whole family. Come out to Cochrane, play hockey, have fun, and take the opportunity to talk to members of the LINDSAY Virtual Human team.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

The LINDSAY Project is highlighted in the Faculty of Medicine Donor Report 2010-2011.

“I thought the way we were teaching anatomy was pretty static,” says Dr. Wright. “I thought there could be a more visual and interactive way to teach anatomy, something more dynamic for students.”
