The 13th annual 93.1 RED FM Gurpurab Radiothon is set for Tuesday, November 12th, 2019
100 per cent of every donation goes directly to Surrey Hospital Foundation, as RED FM generously supports this event and donates the airtime.
Now in its 13th year, the RED FM Gurpurab Radiothon is one of the most successful in Canada.
The RED FM radiothons began in Surrey in 2007 at 93.1 RED FM, and added annual radiothons at 106.7 RED FM in Calgary in 2014.
The goal for this year’s Radiothon is to renovate and upgrade equipment in the Mata Tripta Family Birthing Unit at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
The goal is to raise $550,000 to update the family birthing unit, named by the community after a successful Gurpurab Radiothon in 2012.
On the occasion of the 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak’s birth, SHF is pleased that the community is honouring Mata Tripta by supporting an upgrade to this busy unit.
Equipment purchases will include 2 infant resuscitation warmers with required accessories; 3 Bili Meters with photo therapy lights and blankets to treat and cure jaundice; 10 specialty devices to help women during labour; milk warmers, breast pumps and a variety of other pieces of equipment that will ensure each room is fully outfitted for delivery.
It will also provide a refresh of the unit, including sleeper chairs so both parents and baby can stay together to create the important initial family bond.
We need your support! Here’s how to donate.

Today we had the honour of welcoming Dr. Alex Rajput as the guest speaker for the 5th Annual Dr. Tom Godwin Neurology Lectureship, Parkinson’s Disease – Beyond the Basics.
As clinical experts gathered at the UBC Lecture Theatre inside the Surrey Memorial Hospital, Dr. Rajput shared great insight on Parkinson’s Disease and its current findings. Specifically, the role of novel PD treatments, deep brain stimulation in PD Management and the research potential of clinic-pathological studies with contributions from the Saskatchewan Movement Disorders Program.
Thank you so much to Dr. Rajput for sharing your expertise with us here at the Surrey Memorial Hospital!
This lecture series is made possible by the generous support of the Godwin Family in honour of Dr. Tom Godwin’s leadership role within Fraser Health and in gratitude for the medical care he received at Surrey Memorial.

About the Dr. Tom Godwin Neurology Lectureship
Early in 2013, British Columbia lost a great physician, pioneer cardiologist, mentor and adventurer with the death of Dr. Thomas Godwin. In appreciation of the excellent care he and the family received within the Neurology Unit at Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH), the family has decided to provide funding to establish a lectureship in neurology known as the Dr. Tom Godwin Neurology Lectureship, in his honour.
The goal of this lectureship is to enhance teaching and collaboration among clinical teams and interested medical personnel as neurology experts continue to unravel the mysteries of the human brain and neurological diseases.
The lectures take place in the UBC Lecture Theatre at the SMH site and video-cast to as large an audience as possible using the available technology.
