Money raised will be used to fund various health-care initiatives at RIH.

This year’s campaign, which will run through November, is again being organized by S. Gurpal Singh Litt, who in 2004 helped raised $125,000 for the hospital during a similar fundraising endeavour.

Cheques will be collected at the donors’ residences, where receipts will also be delivered.
