Campbell Riverites step up in a big way

Campbell Riverites were generous this year during the March for Children which raised money for the hospital

The Rotary Clubs of Campbell River recently presented $9,556 to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation to support healthcare for children at Campbell River Hospital.

The funds were generated through last season’s March for Children, a shared project between the two Campbell River Rotary clubs (Noon Hour and Daybreak) which has generated more than $380,000 since it began in the 1950s. The March for Children takes place every December. Rotarians stand with their buckets outside of various malls throughout the community asking for donations.

The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.

Throughout their history, Campbell River Rotarians have continuously adopted the theme that Rotarians are committed to “putting something back into the community.”

This has resulted in millions of dollars and tens of thousands of volunteer hours into projects for the citizens of Campbell River, including donations to Campbell River Hospital through the March for Children.

Anyone who would like to make a donation in support of the doctors, nurses and other key members of the local healthcare team can make a donation to the Hospital Foundation either online at, www.crhospitalfoundation.ca or calling (250) 850-2418.
