BROCKVILLE – For the second year in a row, the Shoppers Drug Mart’s “Growing Women’s Health” Campaign shone a light on cardiovascular health for women, with an emphasis on raising awareness of the Brockville Cardiovascular Program (BCP) at the Brockville General Hospital (BGH).
The BCP is a prevention and rehabilitation service that receives no government funding and is run entirely on community donations. During the campaign, funds were raised in support of the BCP at both Brockville stores, as well as the Prescott location. Customers had the opportunity to support the service by purchasing personalized “Growing Women’s Health” icons, throughout the month long campaign.
Other events included; spin the wheel game, popcorn and bake sale, and a silent auction. Shoppers also collaborated with the BCP to put on a very successful Open House. Total funds raised for the BCP on behalf of the three Shoppers locations, over $10,296…amazing heart health advocates!
