February 25, 2021: During the week of Feb. 5 to Feb. 14 the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation (BDHF) collaborated with the Brockville Real Canadian Superstore for the Foundation’s “Show Your Heart” Campaign. Superstore shoppers were given the opportunity to donate $2 at the cash during the week of the campaign with all proceeds going directly in support of the Brockville General Hospital’s (BGH) Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.
“The whole focus of the Show Your Heart Campaign is to bring an awareness that a Cardiac Rehabilitation Program operates out of BGH,” stated Joan Simon, Executive Director. BGH’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program offers a customized program that assists patients following a cardiac event. The program receives minimal government funding and relies on donations, fundraisers and community supporters, like the Brockville Real Canadian Superstore. There are no fees charged to the participants of the program.
Simon further noted, “We are extremely fortunate to have this program in Brockville and with the community’s help we can keep this service close to home.”
The BDHF would also like to thank the Superstore staff who made this campaign possible. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
