Campbell River Rotarians present a cheque for new hospital equipment to representatives from the Campbell River Hospital and the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.

March for Children funds support hospital foundation

Funds from December’s March for Children will go towards helping newborns who need to be transported to a larger medical centre.

March for Children raised $10,270 in 2015 and the funds were recently presented to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation by the Rotary Clubs of Campbell River.

The money will help support the Transport Isolette for the Maternity Department at Campbell River Hospital.  The Transport Isolette is used when a baby needs to be transferred to another hospital for a higher level of care and can be used when flying isn’t possible.

There are two Rotary Clubs in Campbell River — the Rotary Club of Campbell River and the Rotary Club of Campbell River Daybreak. Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace and throughout the world.

The March for Children takes place in December on the last Saturday before Christmas and is a project shared between the two Campbell River Rotary Clubs. It has generated more than $370,000 since it began in the 1950s.
