We are still smiling about this brilliant event! Last month, more than 500 people, participated Run the Great Lakes, supporting the Sault Area Hospital Foundation and ARCH Hospice. The event successfully raised over $25,000, which will be split between these two essential local charities.

SAH Foundation funds the purchase of critical medical equipment for Sault Area Hospital. This year, we are aiming to raise over $5 million - find out more about our current needs here.
