Moncton, August 24, 2016—This morning, the CHU Dumont Foundation announced the second edition of The Drive, a fundraising event that caters to car enthusiasts in the region.

Once again this year, funds raised through The Drive will go toward the purchase of a da Vinci Surgical System for the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre. The da Vinci system offers a number of safety features, and will allow surgeons to perform less invasive procedures as efficiently as with conventional methods. Surgeries performed using this system will require smaller incisions, resulting in less bleeding, reduced post-operative pain and shorter hospitalization times.

Moncton, Sunday, July 24—It was an emotional moment on Sunday, July 24, as some 50 participants in the 2016 Tour of Hope crossed the finish line in Moncton after cycling a total distance of more than 650 kilometres in three days.

The Tour of Hope, presented by National Bank, is a fundraiser in support of the Tree of Hope Campaign. Proceeds will be used to purchase specialized equipment and to fund continued training for subspeciality teams at the Dr.-Léon-Richard Oncology Centre, to support cancer research efforts, to upgrade the Mgr.-Henri-Cormier Lodge, and to promote healthy living. Last year, the Tour of Hope raised $109,000.
