SLIDE SHOW: Run for Mom

This year's Run for Mom brought in $19,500 for the maternity ward at Chilliwack General Hospital.



A total of 386 people took part in the 16th annual Run for Mom at the UFV Trades and Technology Centre on Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 11, 2014) which featured 5km and an 8km route. Additionally, 16 teams participated, including four schools.

The event raised $19,500 which will go towards purchasing three $6,000 Enotonox systems for the delivery rooms in the maternity department at Chilliwack General Hospital.

The system is used for patient-administered inhalation of nitrous oxide and oxygen gas for procedural pain relief. It is an excellent method of providing short-term pain relief and relaxation during a number of painful procedures including childbirth.
