15 yr old's Solo Marathon for Lions Gate Hospital
Due to the COVID-19 crisis the campaign to build a Critical Care Unit at Lions Gate hospital has had reduced funding.
I am a grade 10 student at Carson Graham Secondary School, and want to do something to help our hospital and our community. Together we can make change happen - I will be running a solo marathon in just 2 months [42 km - a huge personal challenge].
Thanks in advance for your contribution - any amount will make an impact.
Starting 8am, Saturday, August 1, 2020
Fen Burdett Stadium [Mahon Park], North Vancouver, BC
Of the 65,000 annual patients of Lions Gate hospital, 70% have suffered a serious illness or injury that requires advanced levels of care.
With your help the new Critical Care Unit could support 1,400 patients a year with long-term health issues including:
• Patients with heart, lung & kidney disease
• Step-down intensive care patients
• Post-surgical patients
• Emergency patients requiring close monitoring
100% of funds raised will be used to refurbish and equip the new unit with advanced life-saving technology and equipment.
