Care From the Heart Day aims to raise $250,000 for Chinook Regional Hospital mental health area

The Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation’s 11th annual Care From the Heart Day Radio-a-thon is all set to take place throughout Thursday (Feb. 13).

Six local radio stations, including 94.1 Juice FM and 98.1 2Day FM, will be broadcasting live from the hospital’s atrium, highlighting the impact donors have made at CRH.

The foundation’s Executive Director, Jason VandenHoek, says the goal for this year is to raise $250,000, and he’s confident that it’ll be reached with the generosity of those around southern Alberta. That money will further support the renovation and redevelopment of the mental health area at Chinook Regional, a project that VandenHoek says has been going on for a few years.

Donations can be made online, by calling the CRH Foundation, or by stopping by the hospital atrium in person on Thursday (Feb. 13) from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
