The Chilliwack Hospital and Health Care Foundation launches its first campaign this afternoon.
The theme is “basic training”, focusing on the basics of health like eating, sleeping, and moving.
Executive director Donna Dixson says they’re working to make sure their services aren’t duplicated by other organizations.
“We want to work with the stakeholders in the community. We’ve invited a number of them to come out and set up booths and it’s going to be really a ‘rallying around’ for the public, about all of us being in this together to make Chilliwack a healthier community.”
Unlike other health care foundations, the CHHCF is not about raising money for buildings and equipment, but rather to support healthy community initiatives and programs.
The launch will be at 2 PM today at the Cheam Leisure Centre and anyone is welcome to come down.
