KITCHENER, ON – Rangers Reach is excited to announce a partnership with the St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation (SMGHF), kicking of a Rangers Reach Community Impact 50/50 Raffle on New Year’s Day 2021 to promote and support heart health in our community.
The Raffle will support the lifesaving work St. Mary’s Regional Cardiac Care Centre offers as one of the premier cardiac care centres in our province right here in our own community. Recognizing the importance of St. Mary’s role, several local businesses quickly signed on to promote the Raffle.
“St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation is thrilled to team up with Rangers Reach – and by extension, the loyal fans of the Kitchener Rangers – to raise funds for local healthcare. Never before has the importance of a prepared hospital been more evident, and St. Mary’s reliance on community support better understood. At a time when we could all use some fun, the exciting Rangers Reach 50/50 draw provides an opportunity for the community to come together in a lighthearted yet meaningful way. We are grateful to be the beneficiary of this display of generosity. “Susan Dusick, President & CEO of St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation.
Craig Campbell, Executive Director of Rangers Reach added “We felt with a lot of focus on the pandemic, that some aspects about other health care supports in our community may have been left in the shadows. Having heard stories of many heart health challenges among our fans and their families, the impact of supporting the cardiac program at St. Mary’s feels like a great match. ”
This January-long initiative, culminating with a draw on February 1, is proudly presented by Arnold Hearing Centres. When extended the opportunity to get involved, Chris Arnold, owner of Arnold Hearing Centres was excited to participate.
“We are so grateful to the community that has supported us for over 70 years and we want to do our part to say thank you. We couldn’t choose a better partner than Rangers Reach. Supporting St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation is a great opportunity for us to show our appreciation for their tireless efforts to support the health and wellness of our community. We are honored to do our part.“Chris Arnold – Owner, Arnold Hearing Centres
