Lunenburg County’s Elderfit elves brought a gift of joy to the redevelopment of South Shore Regional Hospital.

Each year the 50+ fitness group, which focuses on aqua aerobics, chooses a cause to fundraise for. This year at their annual Christmas luncheon, Elderfit’s members raised $5,700 in support of the Health Services Foundation’s Brighter Days capital campaign.

“The gift is represents the merry and bright hearts of the 145-member group,” said group president Sue Rushton. “We figured we are all an age where we are going to need the services that are being enhanced at or brought to South Shore Regional Hospital with the redevelopment. It seemed to be the right cause.”

The gift was made ahead of Lunenburg County Elderfit’s 25th anniversary.
