Giving Back

Giving to others is a responsibility and a privilege, especially when it comes to worthy causes that benefit children. 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 center for pediatric cancer research, treatment and care, the hospital provides critical resources and support for its 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 has been raised for this vital organization. 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. I feel it’s our duty to help support this special place where children from around the world are given the best possible chance of surviving their diagnosis.
