COVID – 19 COMMUNITY SUPPORT

The SHF has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Dr. Kindree Memorial Golf Tournament. This decision was made with the health and safety of our community in mind. We are excited to announce that instead we will have a “Heli Ball Drop” fundraising event in early September 2020. This event will be live streamed on Social Media. STAY TUNED for details on the upcoming fundraiser.

Thank you to Blackcomb Helicopter and the Squamish Valley Golf Course for making this happen!

 

 

A HUGE thank you to Isabella Kavanagh William and Quinn Kavanagh William for the fundraising efforts and support for the Squamish Hospital. Thank you!

Run Squamish

The Squamish Running Society is a non-profit society who most people know as Run Squamish. Their tagline is “Run by the community, run for the community” and each year they do their best to donate a portion of their event fees collected back into the community.  Run Squamish puts on the Loop the Lakes trail running event each year in May and this year’s event was set to be the 16th year. With the event being cancelled this year due to COVID19, Run Squamish gave the participants a choice to either receive a refund of 50% of their race fee or to donate the 50% refund to the Squamish Hospital Foundation. Sean Verret and Jen Segger, two of the directors of The Squamish Running Society have confirmed that Run Squamish will generously be donating $5,000 to the Squamish Hospital Foundation. Run Squamish wants to say thanks to its racers, volunteers and directors for everything they’ve done this year. Donations will help to prepare Squamish General Hospital for Covid related equipment funding now and in the future. The Squamish Hospital Foundation would like to say “Thank you to Run Squamish for supporting healthcare within our community”.

Community DONATIONS make PURCHASE possible for Squamish General Hospital!
 
With generous donations from our community, the Squamish Hospital Foundation has purchased a new Glidescope for use at Squamish General Hospital. The Glidescope will be an important tool for our healthcare teams in our fight against Covid-19. The Glidescope assists in difficult airway management facilitating for smoother intubation yet allowing the healthcare teams to visualize the airway with greater physical distancing than traditional intubation techniques, thus providing some protection for our frontline healthcare workers. Once our community has made it through this current crisis, the Glidescope will be of continued use in emergent situations requiring intubation.
 
The Squamish Hospital Foundation would like to specifically thank 100 Women Who Care Squamish, Rotary Club of Squamish,and the Squamish General Hospital Auxiliary Society  for their quick contributions to the purchase of the Glidescope in these difficult times.
