County Marathon participants eager to run again after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, presented another donation to the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation.

On their behalf, Mark Henry presented Briar Boyce, the foundation’s senior development officer, with $2,500. Over the years, the County Marathon committee has donated $15,601 and remains committed to supporting the hospital this year as the race is expected to resume in October.

“The County Marathon has existed for the past 19 years because of the community support it has needed from dedicated volunteers, businesses, such as the County’s Dairy farmers, and the County itself,” said Henry. “We are so pleased to continue to give back to the community by supporting our local hospital.”

“Donations like this from the County Marathon ensure we can provide the 40,000 patients seen at Quinte Health Care Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital (QHC PECMH) each year with the best care possible,” said Boyce. “The participants and marathon race committee members have demonstrated their commitment to keeping our hospital well equipped for everyone who lives in, or visits, our community.”

The marathon committee looks forward to hosting a race on the weekend of Oct. 2, 2022. Above and beyond running a safe and carbon-neutral event for both runners and volunteers. For more information visit
