Fundraiser on Sunday in support of Kelowna General Hospital

The medical community and Kelowna General Hospital staff are once again clipping into their bikes to raise money for medical equipment as participants in the annua Bike ‘n Braai on Sunday, June 10.

The fundraiser is cosponsored by the KGH Foundation and the TD Bank Financial Group.

The ride departs from Strathcona Park at 10 a.m. and wraps up at the Thoracic Surgeons Heritage House on Pandosy Street with a family Braai (Afrikaans term for barbecue).

Funds raised from the event will go to the KGH Foundation’s General Fund, Area of Greatest Need, to purchase equipment and patient care items that will improve the level of care provided at the Kelowna General Hospital.

“The support given by local healthcare professionals is outstanding and they truly are role models for our community” says Doug Rankmore, CEO of the KGH Foundation.

For more information on how you can make a gift to support this event, please contact the KGH Foundation office at 250-862-4438 or kghfoundation@interiorhealth.ca.
