Waterfront Walk June 5, 2022

With the acceleration of population in the Mississauga City region, it was so clear that Missis sauga needed a new hospital. The Ontario government has allocated a budget to build a new hospital in Mississauga to serve the city citizen and the catchment areas; however, this will not be  sufficient to build this state-of-the-art facility.  
The community will have a chance to fundraise to build Canada's largest Hospital. The Rotary  Club(s) of Mississauga invite you to join Rotarians in a fundraising event in support of what will  be Canada's largest Hospital. You will join the Rotarians and the remarkable former Mayor in the  heart of Port Credit, Mississauga, for the inaugural Hazel McCallion Walk for Health on Sunday,  Jun 5, 2022, at Port Credit Memorial Park. The walk is a 2 km and 5 km fundraising event  along the Port Credit Waterfront Trail. Funds raised from this event will go towards helping build  Canada's largest Hospital - the future home of The Peter Gilgan Mississauga Hospital. The New Hospital is at 24 storeys, with over 950 beds, a new expanded Emergency Department  to reduce waiting times and improve the patient experience, and advanced diagnostic imaging  facilities. 
The increased number of operating rooms to 23, up from 14 today, will save many lives. The  new Hospital means more doctors, nurses and support staff, implementing better technology in  testing and treating patients. In addition, the Hospital will have the highest infection prevention  standards.   
More details about this remarkable project are published at: 
The registration for the Waterfront Walk is free: http://trilliumwalk.ca/ .The event will start with the walk and end with a family-friendly  festival*.There will be a B.B.Q. Lunch, inflatable bouncers, balloon animals, colouring contests,  and music. 
So invite colleagues, friends, and family members to join this walk and raise this Hospital's  funds. I will never forget that cold winter day when the paramedics transported my daughter to  the Emergency. She was in pain, which had to be treated by surgery, but she stayed in the hospital hallway for several hours because no beds were available. I believe many Mississauga citizens had a similar experience!
