Farming for Health raises nearly $209,000

Goes towards new ultrasound equipment

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.
