For the past 13 years the Around the Bay Road Race has raised over $2.5 million thanks to the dedicated fundraisers who choose to support St. Joe's. Last year, almost 2,000 participants in the Around the Bay Road Race chose to walk, run AND raise funds for St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation and together raised an incredible $485,149!
Your fund raising efforts and generosity in this year’s Around the Bay Road Race will enable us to purchase life-saving equipment and provide funds for vital research to create a healthier community for all of us! In past years, thanks to your help, our Hospital was able to:
- Purchase new fetal heart monitors for our labour and delivery unit to monitor the health of mothers and their newborns
- Purchase a new laser for treating retinal disease at St. Joe’s Regional Eye Institute to help more patients retain or regain the gift of sight
- Purchase a new water treatment system for patients who receiving life-saving dialysis care at our Hospital
- Fund innovative research in Mental Health & Addiction Care, Intensive Care Medicine, Diseases of the Chest and Lungs and more!
We are so grateful to all our runners and fundraisers, because every step you take and every dollar you raise will go a long way to support hope, healing and discovery at St. Joe's.
