Humanitarian Efforts

Sick Kids Foundation

– The Sick Kids Hospital has been helping children beat the odds for years and we are proud to have been raising money for them for the last 6 years.  We enjoy helping this charity as they’ve either directly or indirectly helped each and every one of our families.

  • Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children
  • The Foundation’s fundraising is driven by the belief that improving the health and well-being of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society

Community support, separate and distinct from government and granting agencies, is a critical source of funding for SickKids.

  • In the fiscal year that ended March 31, 2012, SickKids Foundation invested $61.3 million in child health research, learning and care
  • $59.3 million of that investment went to critical initiatives at SickKids and $2 million went to national, international and other initiatives

Last year we raised a total of $20,500.00

This year’s total reached $27,000.00

If you are interested in making a donation to the Sick Kids Hospital, please let us know and we’ll be happy to collect your charitable donation to be added to our yearly total.

Lupus Ontario

– Lupus Ontario is a team of caring and enthusiastic volunteers and staff who are passionately committed to helping those with lupus live longer and better by raising funds that deliver vital support, education, awareness and research.  Lupus is an autoimmune disease, a type of self-allergy, whereby the patient’s immune system creates antibodies which instead of protecting the body from bacteria & viruses attack the person’s own body tissues. This causes symptoms of extreme fatigue, joint pain, muscle aches, anemia, general malaise, and can result in the destruction of vital organs. It is a disease with many manifestations, and each person’s profile or list of symptoms is different. It is often referred to as “The Disease of a 1000 Faces.” – We organized a cruise and car show at Troutwater Family Campground this year with prizes, This Year’s Total was – $5000.00
