We are so thankful to all those who dedicate their time, energy and passion to organizing events in support of RVH. They are a vital part of the fight to end hallway medicine, shorten wait times, and keep world-class, specialized care close to home.

Large and small fundraisers have been held for RVH and our planned expansion, from garage sales to golf tournaments and hockey games to bake sales. They are at the forefront of the fight to Keep Life Wild, and we could not be more grateful.

Check out all the events that are happening now. You can join in or help their fundraising efforts by making a donation.
