Camping for a Cause: Go Wild for the Wellness Centre
The Coboconk, Norland & Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that the Camping for a Cause: Go Wild for the Wellness Centre fundraiser exceeded all expectations!
The fundraising campaign brought out ten campers from the community to raise awareness for the new Wellness Centre and raise funds to help make the project a reality. The campers exceeded their goal of $10,000 and ended up with a total of over $24,000!
It is amazing to see what can be accomplished when our communities come together. We are so thankful to every camper who joined in the challenge, to every sponsor who generously donated to, and to every person who has supported this important project. The success of Camping for a Cause: Go Wild for the Wellness Centre represents the launch of the community fundraising component for the Wellness Centre. As the community demonstrates their enthusiasm for the much-needed Wellness Centre, the Chamber will work to secure funding from the 3 levels of government in order to make it a reality.

Plans are moving forward to bring a new Wellness Centre to Coboconk!
As you have probably already heard, the Chamber has been working hard on an initative to build a Wellness Hub in Coboconk that will help to address the issues that have arisen from the closure of the Coboconk Medical Centre.
The concept is to renovate and expand the Coboconk Train Station building, preserving that significant piece of Coboconk history, and building space for 2-3 doctors, after-hours care hours, a dentist, and other complementary practitioners such as seniors foot care, massage, physio and chiropractic care. Expanded space through new construction, new parking, and better road access are all part of the new plans.
