Together for OUR Health Radiothon is Back!
On Thursday, April 25, the 3 local radio stations: 95 CKNB, CHRQ 106.9 FM and CIMS 103.9/96.7 FM will be broadcasting the Together for OUR Health Mega 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!
Several health professionals will be on hand to talk about the specific types of services and care that are made possible in the Restigouche thanks to the financial contribution of the Foundation.
There will also be lots of prizes to be won throughout the Radiothon broadcast, including two iPad, sponsored by the Restigouche Automobile Dealers Association.
$100 gift certificates that will be randomly given out every hour throughout the Radiothon to those making donations of $20 or more, courtesy of our local Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean Coutu, Familiprix, Atlantic Superstore, Guardian and Walmart pharmacies. Keep listening to the Radiothon to find out how to enter.

It’s an event you won’t want to miss!”
Funds raised during the Radiothon will mainly be used to purchase cutting edge medical instruments to RESTORE and MAINTAIN ophthalmology services at the Campbellton Regional Hospital. Each year, more than 300 patients from the region have to travel elsewhere for cataract surgery. The Foundation’s financial contribution, through the Radiothon, will considerably reduce travelling for local patients and will help maintain ophthalmology services, right here in our region.
