2019 marked the 18th year for the CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon, and the results are in. The Radiothon took place on October 19th, 2019 and included 10 area hospital foundations. This year, total funds raised during Radiothon were $323,714 with more donations arriving in the days and weeks following. In its 18 years, the Radiothon has proven itself to be a fundraising powerhouse, raising more than $11,600,000 in support of local health care.
This year, the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation set a goal to raise $100,000 towards a portable x-ray machine for LMH. We are delighted to report that, through the gracious support of Mount Forest and the surrounding area, we have exceeded this goal and have raised an amazing $105,915 to date! We are so grateful for the generosity of our community that allows us to continue to support the growing equipment needs of our expanding local hospital.
Congratulations to Bert O'Donnell, the winner of our 50-50 draw which took place at the Legion during our euchre tournament in support of Radiothon 2019.
