Funds raised at the Bayshore Race will support improvements to diagnostic testing at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital, including:
ECG Loop Recorders
$22,000 needed for 15 recorders
Abnormal heart rhythms come and go. Patients wear a loop recorder home and go about their normal routine turning the recorder on as symptoms begin.
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to detect abnormalities related to electrical activity of the brain to diagnose conditions such as epilepsy. This procedure tracks and records brain waves. A 2nd unit is needed to help meet increased demand for testing.
Ultrasound Probe Reprocessing Unit
$50,000 needed for 2 units
Located right in the Ultrasound clinic, this equipment cleans and sterilizes ultrasound probes between tests. Cleaning takes just 7 minutes using no harmful chemicals.
Runners and walkers are encouraged to collect pledges from family, friends and neighbours. We’ll provide draw prizes, registration refunds and a team challenge as incentives for participants to raise as much as possible! We aim to raise $50,000 at the Bayshore Race.
