The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation has now raised over $1,000,000 for Cancer diagnostic and treatment equipment in Fort St. John.

The milestone was hit Saturday afternoon at the 11th annual Bluey Day Fundraiser.  Over the course of the last 11 years, Bluey Day alone has raised over one million dollars.

On Saturday over 40 people shaved their heads and raised over $72,000 for 2010.  The foundation had set a goal of $100,000 this year, but are still hopefully they will reach it as the remaining money from head shavers rolls in.
