Make a Difference
with Your Impact

Achieve your goal and help buy the highest need in equipment at the Health Centre. Currently the 15 year-old $1.6 million 4 unit x-ray system (all used daily) will no longer be serviceable as of December 2020. 2 mobile replacement x-rays costing $200,000 each are needed. Donations have been received for 1. PSRide will help buy the other.

FAQs

When can I ride?

Whenever you fancy. Ride like the wind. Do as you please. Sign up any time before August 31 to track your rides and blow past your goal.

What am I fundraising for?

This year, we are helping to replace the 15-year-old x-ray units in Medical Imaging. The total cost is $1.6 million. With a $100,000 matching gift from Lori and John McAuley of Muskoka Woods, funding for 1 replacement mobile x-ray unit is near completion. To replace the 3 remaining units, $1.4 million in x-ray funding is needed prior to December 2020 when all 4 units are deemed out of service by the supplier.

Since 2010, donors to the Foundation have bought all the major equipment – replacement or new. We encourage everyone who can, to support purchasing local medical equipment by riding like the wind!

Is there a minimum needed to participate?

None. Set a goal. Go for it. Even, blow past it. When you set a personal distance goal and a donation is received, our tracking will divide your goal by the donation amount and share how much per kilometre you just FUNraised!

Be The Difference

In normal times, and these aren’t normal, government funding to the West Parry Sound Health Centre barely covers 65% of the Hospital’s annual operating costs. Foundation Donors buy all the major equipment while medical leases, contracts, parking and other services complete the remaining operational funding. With parking revenues seriously diminished since mid-March with a no visitors no elective surgery policy, reduced revenues from clinics and other contracts, our Health Centre is financially bleeding. Hospital finances are in dire straits.
