Kayaking for Cardiac Rehab
July 5, 2016
Rick Trapp has a passion for the Brockville Cardiovascular Program (BCP) at the Brockville General Hospital (BGH).
As a graduate of the program in 2014, Rick knows all too well the benefits this program has to each and every person that enters its doors. Three years ago, he wanted to give back to the program that gave life back to him – and so began the annual kayaking fundraiser.
For the last three years, Rick and fellow kayakers have made the journey from Kingston to Ottawa. This year’s event raised an astounding $10,750 in pledges, doubling the funds raised in 2015! The BCP receives no government funding and events such as this are the key to its ongoing operation.
