Thank you for supporting Rockathon 2024!

Fourteen teams rocked throughout the day for local healthcare on Friday, June 21, 2024. 

That day marked the third-annual Rockathon, where participants collect pledges and rock together at the Valley Manor Courtyard.

Opening ceremonies startedwith bagpiper Annadean Kerr, who led the team captains around the Valley Manor courtyard. 

The event is organized by St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation (SFVHF) and a dedicated Rockathon committee consisting of Lisa Yantha, Julie Callon, Jill Vermaire, Susan Bernad and Sharon Florent, and SFVHF Staff Breanne Kuiack and Christine Hudder.

This year, funds raised will go toward local healthcare, including much needed equipment for the Valley Manor such as resident lifts, mattresses, bariatric beds & chairs and more.

Thank you to our incredible sponsors who made this day a success: Rest and Relax Gold Sponsor St. Francis Herb Farm. Recline and Unwind Silver Sponsors Quality Homes and Renovations, Joe Vermaire and Aaron Cope from Royal LePage, Northern Credit Union and Wilno Tavern. Comfort and Soothe Bronze Sponsors Medline, Madawaska Coffee, Fendock, Yuills Valu Mart and V & S Stedmans.

Thank you to the many talented entertainers who kept toes tapping throughout the day including Jack Conners, Kim Shalla, Country Mile, Shakey D, Gwen Coulas with John & Lawrence, the Young at Heart Line Dancers and Joe Bratley. 

More than $27,800 has been raised through Rockathon 2024. Thank you to everyone in the community who pledged their support to a team, rocked, and/or sponsored this year’s event.
