Entering into the 9th year – the Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup in Toronto will be held November 4 and 5, 2016, and has raised over $18,000,000 for children’s cancer research treatment and care for The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids).
SickKids is one of the top children’s hospitals in the world; renowned for its world-class patient care, research, education and advocacy. Through donor support, SickKids has become a charity that strategically invests in research and training programs that have the potential to improve the health of children across Canada and around the world.
Cancer is the most common cause of disease-related death among Canadian children, and the rate of occurrence continues to rise. This world-renowned place of research, healing and hope, sees a new cancer patient almost every day, accounting for 60 per cent of all childhood cancer cases in Ontario. All Rally participants and celebrities share the SickKids vision: Healthier Children, A Better World.
“Every gift in support of children’s health makes a difference,” says Ted Garrard, Chief Executive Officer, SickKids Foundation. “Community support from events like Rally for Kids with Cancer helps patients and their families who rely on SickKids continue to have access to the best resources and treatment.”
