The event will run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., being held at the BC Ambulance Bay, in the corner of the formal Fort St. John Hospital.
There are 42 registered participants as of today, raising a minimum donation of $500. Executive Director for the Hospital Foundation, Ashley Bentley says they’re receiving more applications everyday.
“The community has showed amazing support to the hospital in fundraising for the equipment and than also showing support to the caner patients in our community,” Bentley explained.
Bentley says in the past, they’ve had between 50 – 100 community members participating in the fundraiser.
All the funds raised will go towards needed hospital equipment for cancer treatment throughout the year.
Although Bentley says it’s a little late for sign up, given the minimum donation, they’re still open to anyone looking to register for this Saturday.
If you’re interested, come into the Fort St. John Hospital, located at 8407 112 Avenue and look for the registration desk behind the gift shop.
