2014 Georgian Bay 2K, 5K, 10K Walk, Run, Pole

In 2014 your support of the Georgian Bay Walk, Run, Pole - Do It For Life will buy a new Telemetry System for monitoring cardiac patients.  The current system has failed so together, with $26,700 put aside in our 2013 event, we will buy the new $80,000 monitoring system for rehab.  Remaining funds raised will help the Foundation buy the highest priority in the Health Centre.  In 2013/2014 the highest priority is buying a new telemetry system for ICU & Emergency ($200,000). 

 Sunday, May 25th, 2014
Location: The Charles W. Stockey Centre, Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada

New in 2014:  A Costume Prize! Remember the 'boys in red' last year?  We loved them!  So, they have inspired a costume prize starting in 2014.  It's a fabulous handcrafted trophy that will be yours to install in a place of honour for 1 year.  Then you must give it back so we can bestow it on next year's winner.  You must insure it's back at the Health Centre by May 1 2015!

And, the Township with a Heart Prize.  Last year we invited surrounding townships to participate with the goal of winning the trophy.  We are thrilled to have Mayor Conn of Seguin and Councillor Gary French from the Archipelago participating, but without a doubt it was Carling that took the prize!  Township staff and some council participated.  They were outfitted and they completed the event.   So, Carling is the Township to beat if you want to show your heart!

Organizers are pleased to support The West Parry Sound Health Centre. The Health Centre is the only hospital along the approximately 270 K route that includes the 400 and 69 highways between Barrie and Sudbury. The hospital plays a key role in the lives of cottagers and residents as well as travelers along these busy roadways. In the summer months, activity explodes in both the Emergency Room and the 6 Nursing Stations that are strategically located throughout the vast area. Since the opening of the Health Centre in 2005, the task is to keep equipment current and up-to-date with evolving technologies. A challenge considering the overwhelming cost of new technologies and a population of only 20,000 permanent residents in the area. The Georgian Bay Walk, Run, Pole is the main fundraiser for this important facility.
