Kelowna General Hospital Annual Bike & Braai – Okanagan portrait photography / photographer

By , On , In General

Today I got to take part (meaning take photos of – I’m not a cyclist! ) KGH’s fourth annual Bike and Braai. It was a great event that the medical team at Kelowna General Hospital and KGH foundation do together to raise funds for new medical equipment and technology for KGH. The hospital foundation will match  dollar for dollar the funds raised. The event also builds great friendships as it’s easy to see that the medical team really work together well. It was a pleasure being there today.

Organizers thoracic surgeons, Dr. Bill Nelems and Dr. Michael Humer have really rallied the doctors in support of the Hospital Foundation – there were over a hundred riders today.

They also had support from Monashee Adventure Tours, BC Thoracic Surgery, Okanagan Health Surgical Centre, Fresh Air Experience and iQuest. Proceeds from today’s event will go to purchasing a ‘rigid bronchoscopy system’, which is critical to removing foreign objects from the airways and can also be used for paediatric cases.
