Community support came running in from County Marathon participants who ran virtually this past year. On behalf of the County Marathon committee Mark Henry presented Briar Boyce of the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation with $1,000 on Wednesday, December 8. Almost half the funds were raised by this year's runners - with the committee opting to round up the donation. “The County Marathon has existed for the past 19 years because of the community support it has needed from dedicated volunteers, businesses, such as the County's Dairy farmers, and the County itself. We are so pleased to continue to give back to the community by supporting our local hospital,” said Henry.

Donations like this from the County Marathon ensures we can provide the 40,000 patients seen at Quinte Health Care Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital (QHC PECMH) each year with the best care possible. The runners and marathon race committee members have demonstrated their commitment to keeping our hospital well equipped for everyone who lives in or visits our community,” said Briar Boyce, senior development officer of the PECMH Foundation.

The County Marathon Committee looks forward to hosting a race the weekend of October 2nd 2022 - should the pandemic allow. Above and beyond running a safe event for both runners and volunteers, the intent is to run a carbon neutral event (using audited carbon sequestration) - as was the case in 2021. The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation is a charitable organization whose mission is to raise money to advance health care for the patients of the hospital and the people of Prince Edward County.
