Moose FM has once again teamed up with the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation and Rhyason Contracting to help raise funds for the Be an Angel, Light a Light campaign. Starting Wednesday November 16th Moose FM’s staff will be camped out in the parking lot of Unforgettable Memories Foto Source raising money for the foundation.
For three days Moose FM will broadcast live from the parking lot with our 6’ x 12’ sign. With your donation to the foundation, we’ll add one light to our sign. Once it’s all lit up we hope to have raised over $40,000. This year all the money raised will go towards the purchase of a new wireless fetal heart monitor.
This piece of equipment is used to check a baby’s heart rate while still in utero (in the womb). Doctors often monitor the heart rate when there are risk factors for fetal compromise or if labour needs to be induced. Monitoring the baby’s heart rate can indicate their well being and whether or not they have enough oxygen when the mother is experiencing contractions.
It can alert doctors of any problems or complications before they become serious, and helps them determine a plan for care.
This is the 13th year for Light a Moose.
If your company would like to make a corporate donation to Light a Moose you can do so starting next week online at www.energeticcity.ca. Or you can arrange an in person donation by calling Catherine at 250-787-7100.
