We are excited to once again partner with Make-A-Wish® Canada to help raise funds to grant life-changing wishes across Canada. To date, we’ve raised well over $200,000 for Make-A-Wish through our national partnership.
Life feels like it’s on hold for many of us right now and for kids fighting critical illnesses, waiting may not be an option. With out help, we can come together during this time of stress and isolation, we can give a child hope, comfort and precious moments with their family.
Right now, there are over 400 wish kids whose wishes have been postponed because of COVID-19 — and that number grows every day as this crisis continues. Your support will help grant a wish for a child waiting in your community.
This is the Year to Give Back!
Here’s how you can help.
Upon registration, create a personal fundraising page and ask your friends and family to support your efforts in raising funds for wish granting while you participate in the fun HOHOHoliday 5Km event. Or, you can make a donation when you register.
