On February 6th, 2016, the 34th Annual Kiwanis Bed Races in support of local charities took place at Winterlude.
This fun and exciting event has been supporting QCH for the past 5 years and we are extremely grateful for the individuals and companies who came out to support our hospital. $40,000 was raised for Kiwanis Club of Ottawa Projects, where QCH was a charity of choice. Please visit the Ottawa Kiwanis web page for details on best fundraiser, best decorated and fasted beds! http://www.ottawakiwanis.org/bedrace/
Thank you to all participants for your generous support (and participation) in the Kiwanis Bed Races!QCH received $10,000 from the Bed Race fundraising…THANK YOU!
This year we are directing funds raised through this event to the Myers Automotive Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) Unit. This unit is the first of its kind in eastern Ontario and will provide leading-edge geriatric care to our most vulnerable patients.
Thank you again to all participants! We hope to see you back next year and maybe this time, on the ice!
