To help Cape Bretoners live full and healthy lives.
To instill a spirit of giving to link the generosity of donors with the health care needs of Cape Bretoners.
Who we are
The Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization established to ensure quality health care for all Cape Bretoners. Through support from the community, we raise funds for state-of-the-art equipment and enhanced services at the Regional Hospital. Every dollar you give is used to improve health care for the patients of the Regional Hospital
Since 1991, thanks to the generosity of our community, more than $15 million has been raised to purchase medical equipment that has dramatically reduced wait times and provided an increased menu of services – closer to home.
Our projects include the Cape Breton Cancer Centre Expansion, a new MRI and bone densitometer, innovative surgical equipment, incubators and monitors for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the new Palliative Care Unit. These projects have helped ensure an additional 125 people a day receive care at the Regional instead of traveling to Halifax.
Race the Cape
Race the Cape is four days of challenging point-to-point sail racing, both inland and coastal ocean, broken into four legs of up to 40 nautical miles through the Bras d’Or and along the Atlantic coast of Cape Breton Island. Race the Cape is an International Sailing Federation – Off Shore Special Regulations (OSR) Category 4 Race, generally sailed during daylight hours. There are both Spinnaker and Non-Spin Divisions.
During the layover day on July 19th, at the Bras d’Or Yacht Club in Baddeck, racers are encouraged to attend a auction with all funds raised gong to the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation, the Northside Harbourview Foundation and the Victoria County Memorial Hospital Foundation.
Play Fore Kids
On Friday, July 26th, join the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation and the YMCA of Cape Breton for the 2nd Annual Play Fore Kids Charity Golf Tournament at The Lakes Golf Club. Support two of Cape Breton’s largest charities through one event and help us take steps forward in children’s health! Last year, this tournament sold out, hosting 144 players from Cape Breton’s business community. All proceeds raised support the Pediatrics Unit at the Regional Hospital and the YMCA’s children’s programs.
