The proceeds from the Walk Run will fund priority medical equipment needed to grow and strengthen the services provided in the Cobequid Community Health Centre’s Cardiology Clinic located at its Sackville facility. The 2014 Walk Run raised $59,615 (cash) and $12,800 (in-kind) for a Grand Total of $72,415.
We asked the Centre to explain what they do and why support is so badly needed:
“Cobequid Community Health Centre (CCHC) is here for you, your family and your neighbours. Whether you require emergency care, are managing a chronic illness, or need routine tests, care is available for your entire family. CCHC has the fourth busiest Emergency Department in the province of Nova Scotia. Annually our Emergency Department serves over 33,000 patients. Of those patients, 68.6% were adults, 14.9% were children, and 16.5% were seniors. CCHC also has the fastest ambulance to bed time in metro.
The Walk & Run event raises funds for priority medical equipment for the Emergency Department at CCHC. Since 2006, the Cobequid Community Health Centre Foundation has funded over three million dollars in priority medical equipment. With the generous support of our donors and sponsors we are able to continue our work towards building a place for our community. “
