Campbellton, NB – The Friends of Healthcare Foundation regrets to announce that the 8th Doctors’ Walk planned for October 2, 2021 will not be held as scheduled due to the COVID‑19 pandemic.
“Since the Doctors’ Walk is a gathering event and we are part of a health care facility, we must cancel this activity for a second consecutive year. We encourage the community to get vaccinated and to follow handwashing, physical distancing and masking recommendations so that we can all get through this pandemic in good health,” stated Jean‑Luc Landry, Executive Director of the Friends of Healthcare Foundation.
The Foundation recognizes that the need for health services in the Restigouche community is even greater during this fourth wave of the pandemic. It therefore asks people to show solidarity and protect themselves. If people want to make a donation, here is how they can do so:
- On the www.friendsofhealthcarefoundation.ca website, by clicking on the “Ways to give” tab;
- By mailing a cheque made out to the Friends of Healthcare Foundation to PO Box 880, Campbellton, NB, E3N 3H3;
- By sending an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org;
- By phone at 506‑789‑7019 using a credit card (Visa or MasterCard only).
The pandemic is hitting the Restigouche economy hard. We encourage people to support their local businesses, organizations and their Foundation. Let’s offer our support … in our region, for our region!
Looking forward to seeing you next year!
