Memorial Students Are Truly Unstoppable!

Walk For The Docs of Tomorrow

For the fourth year in a row, Memorial University of Newfoundland medical students were the top fundraisers in Vancouver at the Walk for the Docs of Tomorrow. Having won our annual contest for the most funds raised by a university team, Memorial’s Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) once again secured bragging rights, $1,000, and a new batch of jackets to add to their growing collection. Memorial’s FMIG raised $9,130.00, contributing to a total of more than $16,000 in funds raised for this year’s event. Participants hit the pavement bright and early to walk the scenic streets of Vancouver’s downtown core, and were rewarded with a delicious breakfast compliments of the Pacific Rim Hotel.

Another Successful Silent Auction!   


We are thrilled to report that our annual Silent Auction raised more than $11,000 this year!
With heartfelt gratitude, we would like to thank the organizations and individuals, both returning and new, who made this year’s auction such a memorable success through their generous support. We would also like to thank all FMF delegates and attendees who took the time to stop and bid on our eclectic selection of auction items.
