Giving Back

Giving to others is a responsibility and a privilege, especially to those that serve children, and Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children leads the list of organizations that stole my heart many years ago. As Canada’s largest and most sophisticated centre for pediatric cancer research, treatment and care, we are able to help provide critical resources and support for their pediatric cancer initiatives, from groundbreaking research and treatment to practical advancements like chemotherapy backpacks that free young patients from confining hospital stays.  Through the annual Car and Boat Rally Scavenger Cups, which began in 2007, more than $16 million have been raised for this vital cause. Not only does this demonstrate how successful we can be in coming together for a common cause, it shows how necessary it is for each of us to be involved. I am honored to chair these rallies and join with the amazing team of people behind this effort. It’s not only my honor to help lead this initiative but I feel it is our duty to help support this very special hospital where children from around the world are given the best possible chance of surviving their diagnosis.
