Each year, RTOERO districts each select a nominee for the annual community grant for a specific charity or community need. This year, District 48 chose BGH’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.

BGH’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program costs $181,000 annually to operate and receives minimal government funding. The program is entirely supported by donors and community groups, such as the Retired Teachers of Ontario (RTOERO) District 48 for Leeds & Grenville.
