The Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation is grateful to be the Charity of Choice for many community events and special fundraisers which are an important part of our fundraising activities. The proceeds from these events help the Hospital Foundation support better healthcare in our community by funding department expansions, medical equipment, patient comfort items and staff education. In addition, they help raise important awareness about the Hospital Foundation and the need to support healthcare on Central Vancouver Island.

Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
