Volunteer Testimonials

Why people volunteer for the Health Sciences Foundation:

I’ve had the great pleasure of attending several wonderful fundraising events put on by the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation.  When asked if I would consider being on a committee to assist with the Bachelors for Hope Charity Auction, I agreed, knowing that the team at the Foundation and its volunteers would be sure to produce a stellar event.  I can’t tell you how proud I was to be a part of the 2009 committee.  The hard work and dedication of the volunteers and bachelors made for an amazing night. 

What made the experience even more poignant was the friendships that were developed on the committee.  I saw, firsthand, how each member of the team relied on others and this was brought to the forefront this past summer when one of our committee members became quite ill.  As soon as we heard the news, we were by her side, keeping her company, as so many did.  It showed me just how much this woman was respected by her colleagues and friends, and rightfully so.  She is courageous, outgoing and can always make you laugh.  Known to former bachelors and our
committee as “The Wrangler”, she’ll continue to keep all of us in line, in some way, shape or form.

I hope my experience encourages many more to volunteer with the Foundation so that it may continue to fund high-quality healthcare initiatives here in Northwestern Ontario.
