The Nanaimo Wave Babes

Recycling adds up to support for Nanaimo hospital

NANAIMO – Nanaimo Wave Babes dragon boat team raises money for Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation.

The Nanaimo Wave Babes Dragon Boat team raises money throughout the year for the medical imaging department at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital with the help of sponsors Woodgrove Centre, DBL Disposal Services, and Regional Recycling.

The team collects recyclable bottles, scrap metal, and electronics at its ‘Think Pink’ events three times a year. Team members also raise money at their annual plant sale, gardening by donation, and through nut and dried fruit sales.

The team recently delivered $21,000 to the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation for the purchase of breast cancer diagnostic equipment. In almost a decade, the team has raised $160,000 to help the local fight against the disease.
