Campbellton (NB) – It is with great pleasure that the Friends of Healthcare Foundation is announcing the return of the Together for OUR Health Mega Radiothon in partnership with the 3 local radio stations to support healthcare services in the Restigouche. On Friday, April 7, the 3 local radio stations: 95 CKNB, CHRQ 106.9 FM and CIMS 103.9/96.7 FM will be broadcasting the Radiothon simultaneously on their respective frequencies live from the lobby of the Campbellton Regional Hospital. This association is for a common cause: to help maintain and improve healthcare services in OUR community!
Once again this year, the Together for OUR Health Radiothon will also feature all 9 area pharmacies as sponsors. They are Shoppers Drug Mart of Atholville and Campbellton, Jean Coutu of Campbellton, Dalhousie and Pointe-à-la-Croix, Familiprix of Dalhousie, Guardian Restigouche of Belledune as well as Atlantic Superstore and Walmart of Atholville, who each donated $100 gift certificates that will be randomly given out every hour throughout the Radiothon to those making donations of $20 or more.
“I am proud to be able to count on this amazing association of local radios and pharmacies again this year. In smaller regions like ours, we sometimes have to unite forces to be stronger. We are therefore inviting you to join us on April 7 on CIMS FM, 95 CKNB and CHRQ between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.”, stated Mr. Jean-Luc Landry, Executive Director of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation. “You will be able to make your pledge by calling 753-CARE (2273) and 789-BIEN (2436) and honour your pledge at the following locations:
