What the FUNattack is all about!

The FUNattack Finale is almost here!!!!! Just a quick note from Sally Kidson, Executive Director of our Hospital Foundation…..

Hi everyone:

On behave of myself and Saugeen Memorial Hospital, I want to say thank you for participating in the 2017 Fitness FUNattack Finale! I know many of you have participated before but this year is so SPECIAL!  The hospital needs to purchase equipment for our NEW Emergency Room which will be opening in the fall of 2017. The dollars you raise will help us SAVE LIVES!!!

Here’s a story from our ER from last fall.

“As a community, I think we take for granted the fact that we have a hospital. We need to realize how truly lucky we are that we do. I am so very grateful for the Saugeen Memorial Hospital. Having it close by helped in saving my daughter’s life.

On Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at 10:30 p.m., I drove my 4-month-old daughter Kyleigh to the emergency room at the hospital. She was severely dehydrated and she has a congenital heart defect. The nursing staff and doctor who were on call that day were truly amazing! Knowing I was a new Mom, they kept me calm and took such good care of Kyleigh.

They knew quickly that she needed to be transferred to London. While waiting for the ambulance, they made sure we were both comfortable and continued to monitor us both. The care we received and the quick actions of the staff saved Kyleigh’s life – I have no doubt. We are grateful to the nursing staff and doctors – and thank goodness for the Saugeen Memorial Hospital. We will forever be indebted to you!”

This is what the FUN Attack is all ABOUT!! So PLEASE try to raise as many funds as you can with your sponsorships!!! And the PRIZES this year are INSANE!!! I think we have almost $10,000 worth of prizes!!!

IF everyone participating gets at least $600 in pledges, then we will be very close to the $20,000 goal that is SO IMPORTANT!!! So, along with your personal fitness goals, please ask folks to sponsor you. It’s EASIER than you might think! They can pledge you online. Here is the link again for you to share. http://weblink.donorperfect.com/FunAttack2017

You can also have people call in a pledge on your behave at 519-797-3230, ext. 3230.

Note – I am a participant as well, although I don’t qualify for any prizes (which is fine), but I am working hard to find sponsors too! I am with you! So, LET’S DO THIS!!! Imagine how fun it will be to announce to the media that WE RAISED $20,000!!!!

Your efforts are truly appreciated! See you on the 22nd!!!
