Thank you to the 1,700 donors who gave over 2,000 gifts, making this a record-breaking fundraising total for us. But, we are just getting started! We have committed to $5 Million dollars for the future High Acuity Unity at NRGH, and have some great events and programs coming in 2023 to help us get there. Stay tuned!

Giving Tuesday

By Celebrate!, Congratulations!, News, Thank You!

We are so excited to announce that with the help of our friends and neighbours, we raised $140,456 for the new Sentimag System at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital on our first ever Giving Tuesday initiative!
An incredible group of community leaders, including our Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation, the Nanaimo Foundation, the Tom Harris Community Foundation, the Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival, and the Abreast of Life Dragon Boat Team united to make a difference for our hospital this holiday season! Together, they have made significant gifts toward the purchase of the Sentimag System that will support people experiencing breast cancer in our region.
We are so grateful for this amazing show of support. Thank you so much to everyone who has now made the purchase of this essential piece of cancer treatment equipment, as well as a year’s worth of operational costs, possible.
