Members of the Farming for Health committee attended the Health Foundation Gala and on behalf of the project participants in October, and were pleased to present a cheque to the Health Foundation for $208,790.
The funds will be used to purchase a diagnostic ultrasound machine, a device that will be primarily used for heart function testing, cancer diagnosis, and shoulder and joint issues. The machine will do approximately 2,000 tests a year.
This represents the proceeds of this year’s crop. Many many thanks to the entire ag community that helped this fantastic cause.
