2020 UPDATE:  As we continue to navigate the impact of COVID-19, the Pembroke Regional Hospital Foundation, like many charitable organizations, has been faced with difficult decisions regarding alterations to its organisational plan for the remainder of 2020.

The PRH Foundation is following the lead of many other Foundations across the country in order to adapt and ensure that the growing needs specific to our regional hospital are still met.

After careful consideration and in accordance with the forecasted directives from the Federal and Provincial Governments, as well and the Renfrew County District Health Unit, changes are being made to our annual events lineup in 2020.

The Dr. Kim Armstrong Turkey Trot event will unfortunately, be cancelled this year.

See you in 2021!
