As we all continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation is committed to keeping our donors, volunteers and staff safe by adhering to public health guidelines. As a result, we have made the decision to cancel the 2021 Resilient Snow — Family Ski Day which was scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 27th at Brimacombe Ski Resort.

While we may not be able to see you on the slopes this year, we ask you to still consider a gift in support of the Equipped for Care Fundraiser or the COVID-19 Emergency Fund. Improving health care in Clarington is not possible without you and the support of our community. Donations can be accepted right here on our website through the Donate button.

2021 is off to an exciting start for the Clarington community and the We Care, We Can campaign.
