Chillin’ for Charity splashes down at CN Centre on Friday

On Friday, the entire UNBC JDC West team will be jumping in a pool of freezing cold water to raise money to purchase medical equipment for the hospital in Prince George.

UNBC JDC West has partnered with Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation as they raise funds for a Boston SpyGlass DS for this year’s Chillin’ for Charity event.

The SpyGlass DS System enables direct visualization of the pancreatic and bile ducts, is used to evaluate suspected benign and malignant conditions, and is used for the treatment of difficult stones and strictures. This unit is less evasive, does not require sedation, and enables high resolution imaging and therapy during an ERCP procedure to target biopsies, fragment stones through lithotripsy, and remove residual stones, stone fragments, and foreign bodies such as migrated stents.

The team will be jumping on Nov. 8 at 1 p.m. at CN Centre before the Cougars game. Come out and support the event. There will be a donation table as well as buckets of ice to purchase to make the jump that much more chilly.
