Lindsay Facca Memorial Fund for Student Trainers

This spring, Sport Physiotherapy Saskatchewan lost a member of its Executive, Lindsay Facca.  She passed away suddenly on June 7, 2016 at the age of 29.  Lindsay was working in Saskatoon at Craven Sport Services, and had recently received her Certificate in Sport Physiotherapy from Sport Physiotherapy Canada. Lindsay had been an active member of the sports community for many years.  She was a Student Trainer with the University of Saskatchewan Huskie Athletics program where she worked with the Soccer and Football teams.  She was also a Huskie Track and Field Athlete from 2005-2009. To honour Lindsay’s memory, Huskie Athletics has created the “Lindsay Facca Memorial Fund for Student Trainers”.  This fund will provide scholarship assistance to members of the Huskie Student Trainer Program in support of their academic accomplishments so they can achieve their dreams.  We want to ensure that Lindsay’s legacy endures.

We are reaching out to the Sport Physiotherapy family in support of this Fund.  Contact us, if you wish to donate. Please help us honour Lindsay and her family.


If you have any questions, you may also contact Rhonda Shishkin at Huskie Athletics.
