Almonte General Hospital run for women’s health raises $25K
The 8th annual AGH Run for Women’s Health, sponsored by Canadian Tire, Carleton Place, in support of women’s health and the Obstetrics program at the Almonte General Hospital took place over the weekend.
85 participants raised over $25,000 total for the cause.
“We’re so appreciative of everyone that registered, collected pledges and either walked or ran their routes over the weekend,” said Event Chair Julie Munro. “Our amazing hospital has been front and center, even more so during the past two years, continuing to provide all of their regular services including labour and delivery. The success of this event is another example of how much this community is willing to support quality health care close to home. It was also great to see people out enjoying themselves too.”
The Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation raises funds to purchase replacement or new clinical equipment for the Hospital and Manor.
Taking home the Individual Prize for the most funds raised was Hospital employee Tina McLelland who raised $2,300.
