FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Thirty participants are confirmed to getting ready to “be brave and shave” this coming Saturday for the 18th annual Bluey Day in Fort St. John.
Bluey Day, which is put on by the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation, is taking place this coming Saturday at the BC Ambulance Building on 96th Street.
The Foundation’s Executive Director Jennifer Moore says that 30 confirmed participants have already raised a total of $32,201 as of Thursday morning. This year’s goal is raise a total of $100,000 for new equipment at the Fort St. John hospital.
Since the first Bluey Day event back in 1998, over $1.6 million has been raised. 100% of the funds have stayed in the community to help those with the fight against cancer.
This year’s event, which is open to the public, is set to kick off at 10:00 a.m. at the Ambulance building. There will also be a barbecue onsite, with all of the proceeds going to the fundraiser.
