KAWARTHA LAKES: The Ross Memorial Hospital (RMH) Foundation is honoured to be selected by members of 100 Men Kawartha Lakes to receive donations, following its virtual meeting on June 3rd. The RMH Foundation was one of three local charities invited to speak to members and explain the needs for which they are fundraising. RMH Foundation CEO Erin Coons joined the Zoom meeting to discuss the Heroes at Heart appeal, which is raising funds for: urgent COVID-related needs and to replace the hospital’s fleet of ECGs. “We had three very deserving charities present and we look forward to the other two returning to try again,” explained Bradley Campkin of the 100 Men Kawartha Lakes. “I think RMH Foundation’s presentation struck a chord, as we are all so much more aware of the importance of the hospital but also the challenges it faces. We were educated regarding what government covers and more importantly what they don’t! Our group voted to help the foundation and to support its Heroes at Heart campaign collectively.” “I want to thank the 100 Men Kawartha Lakes for their ongoing efforts to help those in need and for making our communities better places to live,” shared Erin Coons. “Everyone is familiar with the hospital, but there are a lot of things the average person doesn’t know about hospital funding. For example, many people don’t realize just how heavily the Ross Memorial Hospital relies on donations from the public to buy medical tools and technology. This gift from the 100 Men Kawartha Lakes will impact the diagnosis and treatment of patients young and old. What a wonderful match for a group committed to helping others.”
