Kawartha Lakes Mums - Will You Walk For Kawartha North Walk-In Clinic? 

Saturday, June 14th Kawartha Lakes "Bigley's Walk for the Cause" supports the after-hours walk-in clinic operated in Bobcaygeon and Fenelon Falls by Kawartha North Family Health Team aka KNFHT. Did you know The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care provides no funding for the cost that would be required to operate the KNFHT's walk-in clinic on an full-time basis?
Yup! It's left to the generosity of the community to make these walk-in clinic extended hours a reality. Help Kawartha North Family Health Team help keep this important service open more hours - every $100 lets the clinic operate for one hour!
