Radio Day 2017 #BecauseUCare


Donate Today


In nine years, our radio events have raised more than $4,300,000 in support of healthcare in Cape Breton.

Your donations have an incredible impact on our community, allowing more Cape Bretoners to get the care they need at home, near their family and friends.

We are counting on your support to fund these critical needs and strengthen the health of Cape Bretoners!

On October 5th, 2017, the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation will celebrate Radioday 2017 #BecauseUCare.

This is Cape Breton’s most successful and highest profile fundraising event of the year.

This year, we are excited to continue to work on our Operation Heart Campaign , which is a $1.35 million fundraising campaign that is focused on the operating room and cardiac care at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital

Help us keep patients home for their healthcare journey.

On RadioDay 2017, we'll be partnering with 101.9 The GIANT and New Country 1035 to raise funds, raise awareness and raise FUN.

We need you to give back this year. Giving back to your community shows that you care and invests in your own community.

The event will run from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Cabot House, 500 Kings Rd, Sydney, N.S.

RadioDay 2017 is a day to give back where you live and prove that Cape Breton cares about their own community.

Help us keep patients home for their healthcare journey and remember that until no patient needs us, we need you.
