New Tecumseth Memorial 5km Community Event Supports Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation with a $12,000 Gift

[New Tecumseth, ON – December 8, 2023] – On Wednesday, December 6, 2023, committee representatives from the New Tecumseth Memorial 5k Run presented a cheque for $12,000 to the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation from their annual event, which took place on October 15, 2023.  The funds raised through the run will play an important role in supporting the Foundation’s Because of you, we can Campaign, contributing to the quality in healthcare services provided by Stevenson Memorial Hospital.

The Run saw an enthusiastic return to the community after facing challenges posed by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. This annual community event, now under the enthusiastic stewardship of a new dedicated group of local volunteers, demonstrated the resilience and unity of the community and the support it has for the event.

“As a small community we’re fortunate to have Stevenson Memorial Hospital, a vital asset that benefits us all. Supporting and funding its projects ensures our hospital thrives, serving the well-being of every resident. The success of our event is a testament to the incredible support of our community and dedicated volunteers, who make it possible. The New Tecumseth Memorial 5k Run not only raises funds but unites our entire community in a fun and inclusive way, promoting physical well-being for a cause we can all rally behind.” stated Lisa Miceli, Run Director, New Tecumseth Memorial.

“We are so grateful for the New Tecumseth Memorial event returning to our community, in support of Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation. The collective efforts of volunteers, sponsors, vendors, and participants were pivotal in raising funds towards this gift, and we are very thankful for their support,” expressed Mary Thomas, CEO, Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation.

The Because of you, we can Campaign is the largest campaign in SMHF’s history. Donations received help purchase essential equipment, upgrade technology, and complete critical renovations essential to the transformation and redevelopment of Stevenson Memorial Hospital.  The hospital’s redevelopment plan includes a new Emergency Department that will triple in size. With an Emergency Department built to manage 7,000 visits a year that currently manages close to 40,000 per year, along with a growing population in south Simcoe and surrounding communities, this redevelopment is needed today and for future generations.
