ext week is the very first Health Heroes Week in Chilliwack a week dedicated to increasing awareness about the Chilliwack Hospital & Health Care Foundation and its work to improve community health, as well as generating financial support among businesses and organizations.


This week is intended to be something like what BC Children's Hospital does in communities across our province except this is local fundraising for local health needs.

We are asking businesses and organizations to help us in one of the following ways:

Make a donation online or by cheque on behalf of business or org. Anything over 20.00 will be issued a charitable receipt. Please be sure to note who you are and that this donation is for to Health Heroes Week

Take up a donation among your staff telling them that you support CHHCF and are hoping that they will do so as well. No amount is too small - we just want to be able to celebrate that you care and are with us in our mandate to make this a healthier community)

Put up our poster and display the donation box we will provide to you on the counter so that your customers can contribute

Invite us to come to a staff meeting during June 17-23 so that we can share our programs and initiatives and get them engaged in what CHHCF is doing

Tell your staff about some of the events going on throughout the week and encourage them to participate- if you choose to be part of Health Heroes Week, let us know and we will bring you a package of information with everything that is going on!

If everyone in Chilliwack gave just one dollar, it would be a significant thing and we just need a lot of people to know and care about our mission to improve community health.


If you are not up to date with all the initiatives we are working on in our region, please check out our website at or our Facebook Fan Page at

My most sincere thanks for anything you can do to make this first Health Heroes Week successful!
