July 3, 2019 - Members of the Kawartha ATV Association are dedicated advocates for the safe use of all terrain vehicles and local trails. They’re also committed supporters of patient care at Ross Memorial Hospital.

The Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation is honoured, once again, to be chosen to receive the charitable funds raised through KATVA’s annual poker run. This year, the event was held on June 1 and included 150 registered bikes and riders.

On June 28, KATVA members Carolyn LaPorte, James LaPorte, James McArthur, Dwayne Kish, Marge Kish and Walt Verleysen presented a cheque for $11,728 to Erin Coons, RMH Foundation CEO.

“We’re blown away by the incredible support of the Kawartha ATV Association,” said Erin Coons. “Their gift will support the purchase of life-saving medical equipment throughout the Hospital through the Here to Help Spring Appeal. Their generosity, and their stories of members’ appreciation for the Ross Memorial Hospital, are truly touching. On behalf of all of the patients who will benefit from this gift, thank you.”
