Dave’s Walk for PRHC Cancer Care

Dave Graham has been so moved by his Peterborough Regional Health Centre care experience that he’s saying “thanks” and giving back to his community by dedicating his daily walks in support of the PRHC Foundation and Cancer Care at PRHC.

Dave’s original goal was to walk 735,000 steps by December 17th when he’s due to finish treatment, and raise $5,000 to help fund the state-of-the-art equipment and technology used by PRHC’s Cancer Care team to provide exceptional, compassionate care to patients from across the region.

But the response of our comunity has been so great, that Dave has already passed his $5,000 goal and he’s been inspired all over again! Dave has raised the bar and his new goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of his walk. Wow, thank you, Dave, and we wish you all the best! 

You can follow Dave’s progress, send him a message of encouragement or donate online at his personal fundraising page.

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

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…
