It’s a big fundraiser for the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation, and it’s happening right here on Y95.

The seventh annual WE CARE Radiothon aims to provide funds for much needed equipment at the hospital.

Mary Surette with the foundation says they’re focused on heart health this year.

“They’ve asked us to purchase 15 patient wrist monitors and a patient data program. This will be used to monitor high-risk heart patients,” said Surette.

They’re also looking to purchase two electrocardiogram units, the total cost of all equipment is $130,000.

“Last year we reached $162,000, we’re looking at making sure we can purchase this equipment for our regional hospital. All of our contributors and sponsors need to be thanked, and the community and volunteers. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to do this. It’s up to us to make sure our hospital is the best it can be.”

The Radiothon will be set up at the Yarmouth Mall Thursday from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.
