Colchester East Hants Hospice receives donation of over $33,000 from Nova Scotia Road Builders Association

From Truro Daily News

Truro, NS — On the morning of July 7th, at the Road Builders Association annual golf tournament, Colchester East Hants Hospice received a generous donation from the Road Builders Association in support of the Jason Fahey Legacy Fund.

The Fahey family teamed up with the hospice not long after Jason passed away in October 2015, of acute myeloid leukemia at the age of 23, to create the legacy fund. Doris Fahey felt it was an “easy answer, to give the money to the hospice society”. Jason had worked closely with Serena Lewis, hospice social worker, and was “really taken away by her”. Fahey was also appreciative saying that the “support is ongoing”, having recently received a phone call from Lewis, just checking in.

Through money raised by their annual general meeting, Pam Sullivan, immediate past president of the Road Builders Association,  felt it was fitting for the association to donate the money to the hospice for the legacy fund. As she states in the Truro Daily News article, they “all live and work in Colchester and East Hants” and “are all friends with the Fahey family”, so it is “something very near and dear to them, and it’a service that affects them all”.

The hospice society is beyond grateful for the $33, 905 donation. Hospice and the Fahey family will work together to determine what to use the money on. Dorris Fahey said that one possible idea is “creating a program to support caregivers”.

Peter Fahey, Jason’s brother, states, “We want to have something in his name”.

Plans for another celebration on December 29, honouring Jason, are already in motion.

For more information on this celebration, visit the Jason Fahey Legacy Fund Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/The-Jason-Fahey-Legacy-Fund-1925979700959561/?fref=ts 

Thank you again to the Nova Scotia Road Builders Association and everyone who has supported hospice and the Jason Fahey Legacy Fund thus far.

"With no government funding, the hospice society relies heavily on fundraisers and donations... Harrison says this change has already allowed the team to put their focus back on developing programs and services."
