Three more companies with business dealings in Surrey have joined Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation’s campaign to help bring new doctors to the region.

A quarter of the way through the 100 days, the Foundation has so far raised $2.226 million.

Transportation and distribution company Diamond Delivery has made a $56,000 commitment to the campaign by scheduling a fundraising run on April 16 in Surrey’s Bear Creek Park. Diamond Delivery representatives are raising $1,000 for each of the 56 kilometres they intend to cover during the company event.

Laurmel/Mainland Sand & Gravel Ltd. has pledged $50,000, as the construction materials company continues a tradition of supporting hospitals in the communities in which its employees live and work.

Heritage Office Furnishings Ltd., which supplied the furniture for the new Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, has made a $10,000 donation to the campaign.

The Foundation’s 100 Days to Give campaign ( will help purchase innovative equipment to attract new doctors to the region. BC entrepreneur Jim Pattison has donated $5 million to the campaign, and the Foundation is looking to raise a further $5 million.
