Moncton, September 15, 2020 – The 2020 edition of The Drive raised $60,000 to improve patient care at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre.

Nadine Martin, Executive Director of the CHU Dumont Foundation is proud of her team and the partners of the Foundation who got together and successfully organized this important fundraiser for the Dumont UHC, while carefully respecting the new social distancing rules. "With these funds, the urology department of the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre will be able to purchase new surgical equipment," says Ms. Martin.

Participants drove from Dieppe to Saint Thomas, and then to Bouctouche, before coming back to town at Flying Boats, discovering many wonders of the New-Brunswick landscapes.

 

"As a health professional, I am pleased to see the community once again answering our call. Now more than ever the Dumont UHC needs our help," explained Dr. Luc Boudreau, urologist at the Dumont University Hospital and the co-chair of the organizing committee for The Drive. "We have highly qualified staff and we will soon have access to modern and better adapted workspaces. It is also important to have the best possible equipment. That is what The Drive is all about. "

The Drive 2020 is sponsored by the BMW Moncton, Audi Moncton, and Lounsbury Chevrolet Moncton.

"We are proud to sponsor this event that benefits the health and well-being of our community," said Chris Bacich, General Manager of BMW Moncton. "The Drive allows us to support important development projects for the hospital. Such progress is of benefit to all of us. "

"I would like to thank all the participants, as well as our generous sponsors. They help us achieve our mission of improving the health care and health services at the Dr. Georges-L. Dumont University Hospital Centre, " says Lise Caissie, chair of the Board of the CHU Dumont Foundation and a participant in The Drive.

The Drive is a fundraising activity for the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre. It appeals to luxury car enthusiasts who have the well-being of their community at heart. It is an opportunity for a group of people with a common interest to drive around together for a full day. They make a few stops

along the way at carefully selected locations. The route is kept secret. At each stop, participants are given a map with directions only to get to the next stop. The day wraps up with a cocktail followed by dinner.
