Tim Hortons annual Smile Cookie campaign will once again partner with the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation in Prince George from Sept. 13 to 19.

Funds raised this year will support the purchase of an additional pediatric MRI patient table.

In 2020 more than 100 Northern BC families had to travel to Vancouver for a 45-minute pediatric MRI out-patient procedure.

Of course this type of travel adds stress and a financial burden onto a family during what is already a time filled with uncertainty.

UHNBC recently started performing a few pediatric MRI procedures but needs more comprehensive equipment to provide full service to the region.

“We are extremely grateful to Tim Hortons in Prince George for their unwavering support of our littlest patients,” Judy Neiser, CEO for the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation, said. “The Smile Cookie Campaign total over the past 19 years is well over $420,000 with all funds directed to improve health outcomes for our littlest patients in the north. It is such a wonderful campaign and the impact can truly be felt here at home.”

Smile Cookies are $1 each and 100 per cent of proceeds from the campaign are donated to bringing the very best care closer to home for children and their families. 

Previous Smile Cookie Campaigns provided funds for a new maternal OR for UHNBC, a remodel of the UHNBC Pediatrics Ward and most recently the purchase of the video laryngescope to aid in difficult intubation of neonatal patients and children of all ages.

Supporters can purchase Smile Cookies starting Monday at all local Tim Hortons locations or pre-order now by visiting www.spiritofthenorth.ca
