Rocky Mountain Collision $20,000 for MRI

Cranbrook, BC… Rocky Mountain Collision teamed up with the EKFH Starlite Campaign to bring a permanent MRI to the East Kootenay. During the months of November and December, Rocky Mountain Collision generously matched online gifts up to $10,000 to the EKFH Starlite Campaign. Donors saw their donations double with the click of a button! The matching campaign was a resounding success and Rocky Mountain Collision donated $10,000 to match donor gifts. We were thrilled to add this gift to an earlier gift to the MRI: An Image of Health Campaign of $10,000 by Rocky Mountain Collision, totaling a $20,000 contribution to bring the permanent MRI to the East Kootenay.

Chris Thom, Owner at Rocky Mountain Collision, “We all know someone who has had to wait too long to receive an MRI exam. The addition of the new permanent MRI will have such a tremendous impact on healthcare for all residents of the East Kootenay. We were excited to be able to offer to match individual’s donations to the MRI to turn $10,000 into $20,000 this holiday season.”

Rocky Mountain Collision has been a long-time supporter of health care in the East Kootenay. “We were thrilled Rocky Mountain Collision decided to match donors, dollar for dollar. This was a great matching campaign that saw amazing success, bringing us $20,000 closer to our goal from Rocky Mountain Collision and $10,000 more from the community. That is $30,000 for the MRI!” states Cassandra Schwarz, EKFH Executive Director.
