The 33rd Annual “Walk for Hearts” organized by the First Open Heart Society of Campbell River was a HUGE success. They raised $14,462 from this walk. The money raised was used to purchase a lifesaving Philips SparQ Ultrasound machine for the Campbell River Hospital ICU.
This event is open to everyone that want to help make a difference by taking a stroll in the sunshine with an amazing group of people. Keltie from our Foundation and her two young boys walked this year, and they enjoyed every minute. It would be amazing to get people of all ages out walking next year with us!!!
