2021 Peterborough’s Dragon Boat Festival raises $91,853.20!

Peterborough's Dragon Boat Festival 2021 cheque presentation

PRHC Foundation was honoured to receive the proceeds from the 2021 Peterborough’s Dragon Boat Festival – an amazing $91,853.20! Wow! Thank you!

2021 marked the Festival’s 20th anniversary and their second year as a virtual event. Their incredible 2021 donation brings their 20-year fundraising total to more than $3.7 million for breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment at Peterborough Regional Health Centre. 

The proceeds of this year’s Festival will help fund a new, state-of-the-art diagnostic ultrasound for the Breast Assessment Centre – enabling even better quality images so radiologists can detect the smallest and most difficult-to-see abnormalities quickly and accurately. It’s cutting-edge technology that will help our doctors, nurses and staff save lives.

Thank you so much to the Survivors Abreast Dragon Boat Team, the amazing organizing committee, Platinum Sponsor Kawartha Credit Union, and all the participants, fundraisers, sponsors, volunteers and donors who made this possible. We hope to see you again next year! In fact, planning for the 2022 Festival is already underway so stay tuned…

Millbrook bottle drive proceeds support PRHC’s healthcare workers

Millbrook Farm & Pet Supplies donation to the PRHC Foundation

Throughout July, Millbrook Farm & Pet Supplies held a bottle drive in support of Peterborough Regional Health Centre’s hardworking healthcare workers…and what a wonderful response from the community!

Thank you, Millbrook Farm & Pet Supplies and everyone who dropped off empties there, resulting in a generous donation of $3,100 to the PRHC Foundation that will help fund the advanced equipment and technology your regional hospital team uses to provide world-class care!
