2014 Tree of Hope Radiothon (Radiothon de l'Arbre de l'espoir)

A virtual tour consisting of five inter-linked interactive 360° images

Archives: Our 360 gallery pages for the 2013, 2012 and 2009 Radiothons.




A Great Success in 2014!

Target: $1.5 million... Attained: $2 million!

At 9:00 a.m., after CBC Radio One Information Morning (radio program), the total amount collected or pledged was already $204,782! A good start for the day. At 7:00 p.m., the 2014 edition of the CHU Dumont Foundation’s Tree of Hope|l'Arbre de l'espoir campaign had raised $2,005,876! Including an anonymous donation of $475,000. The campaign consists of many local community fund-raising events during the year and culminates in a radiothon hosted on both Radio-Canada and CBC Radio stations.

Over $19 million have been raised over the past 26 years. The funds benefit the CHU Dumont Foundation and includes the hospital's oncology centre, the adjoining Mgr. Henri-Cormier Lodge, cancer educationnal programs and Moncton’s Atlantic Cancer Research Institute.

As in previous years, the french-language radiothon was held at the New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) Dieppe Campus and broadcast on Radio-Canada Acadie (Radio). The day's activities actually started in the Engligh language on CBC Radio One Information Morning (FM 106.1 in Moncton); from 06:00 to 09:00 (broadcast from their usual studio location).

The 360° images that are part of this virtual tour were captured during the radiothon. This is the fourth time we covered this special event in 360° images. It is a challenging project to try to capture this fast-paced event. At CBC: limited space, a live radio & audio+video web broadcast, people coming and going, spotlights & dark areas, etc. At NBCC Dieppe: a live crowd, a live broadcast, artists, guests, hosts, VIPs, children, presentations, performances, loud music, spotlights, very dark areas, a big & bright screen, television cameras, support crews, other photographers, etc... but it is both a fun and a worthwhile event! Enjoy the images!

Technical Notes

The 360° images featured on this page were taken at different times, and each image is composed of several photos taken at different times. Image #1 was captured between 8:14-8:38 a.m.; image #2 between 8:42-8:44 a.m., and image #3 between 8:51-8:52 a.m. At NBCC Dieppe, image #4 was captured around 18:12 and image #5 around 18:06. Some people can be seen more than once in the scene because they happened to be (again) in front of the camera when another part of the scene was photographed. This is almost inevitable in a scene that include moving people, animals or objects. In some circumstances, this can be done deliberately, for example to highlight the many activities of a person within a scene over a period of time. See our 360° image of the Moncton Maple Sugar Camp for an example of this technique.
