I hope I am posting this in the right place. My daughter's company is a member of RDA/Pacific and this year the company is in charge if stocking the "Sore Toe" Room, or the place where dancers go when they are injured. Has anyone out there ever put one if these together. We are not really sure of what supplies we need to buy or how much of anything. If you have any information, I would be so grateful to hear it. Thanks.

Moniqueen. I helped in the sore toe room last year at Montreal RDA.Lots of ice and plastic bags. They were not allowed to dispense any type of medication including antibiotic cream, Advil, Tylenol etc. due to liability issues. They had bandages and some wraps and alcohol pads. But really ice was the #1 need. There was a physiotherapist who would come in periodically and see kids too but he was a volunteer. Hope that helps.
