Radiothon - September 21st, 2018


The Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation and the Board of Directors would like to thank you for your wonderful support in reaching our goal last year and making our Radiothons so successful! Your generous support in the past has enabled us to purchase over 3.5 million dollars in needed medical equipment for our hometown Kincardine Hospital!

This year, we are excited to bring you our 4th Annual Radiothon to Kincardine! On Friday September 21st, 2018 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM located at the main entrance of Trillium Court. There will be a food tent by the Kincardine Lions Club, phone lines with support from Bruce Telecom and there will be tons of fun activities, auctions and a raffle!

The proceeds from the Radiothon this year will be going towards the purchase of a Digital X-ray Machine (cost $427,000 + renovation costs of ~$350,000).  On average, 10,000 X-rays are performed at the Kincardine site every year. The current X-ray machine is over 20 years old, surpassing its life expectancy, and the space requires extensive renovations to meet current standards and regulations.  New diagnostic technology will capture images with higher quality and accuracy, and allow for faster exam times and reduced radiation for patients. The digital images produced are available to view within seconds.

We sincerely hope you will be able to join us in this fun filled day. We all benefit from having a Hospital that has up to date medical equipment. Our vision is to focus on our long term goal of keeping our local hospital current and vibrant in order to best service the medical needs of our community. With your help, we are accomplishing this vision together. 


Here’s the exciting part....


We want you to put the FUN back into FUNdraising!

You can get your office, organization or business involved with any fun event (we are giving you lots of time to plan!!!) We want you to come into Trillium Court on September 18th to speak with myFM to let us know how much you raised and how you did it!

Don’t know what to do to get your business involved and help your local hospital?  Here are a few ideas….

 Dress down day, jeans day, blue day – every Friday

  • Bake sale, hot breakfast sale, coffee sale, BBQ lunch
  • Office ‘garage sale’, book sale
  • Raffles, contests
  • A “Loonie or Toonie Run”
  • Crazy challenges!
  • Office golf putt competition
  • Strategically placed donation cans
  • BBQ day
  • Donate an item for our auction
  • Round up on purchases (purchase comes to $3.76 – if customer agrees - round up purchase to 4.00 and .24 is added to the Hospital fund..)

 The ideas are endless on what you can do – it will be fun and appreciated – EVERY amount helps!

We would love you to be a part of our community RADIOTHON!!! We all benefit from having a Hospital that has up to date medical equipment.  Our vision is to focus on our long term goal of keeping our local hospital current and vibrant in order to best serve the medical needs of our community.   And with your help, we can accomplish this vision together.
