Rally for kids with Cancer Toronto
Whether it has happened to your aunt, your cousin or your friend’s little brother, cancer has affected almost everyone. “The cause — kids suffering with cancer — is obviously something dear to my heart but resonates with a lot of people,” says founder of Rally for Kids with Cancer, Joel Hock. The upbeat and heartfelt fundraiser brings Torontonians together to support the Hospital for Sick Children. On Sept. 21 and 22, 2012, celebrities such as actress Julie Benz, hockey player P.K. Subban and the event’s honorary chair Kurt Russell joined rally participants to raise an impressive $2.6 million. With 360 new cancer patients each year, the funds from the fifth annual event are assisting the world-renowned hospital with pediatric research, treatment and care.
