Hello my dear friends and family,
As some of you may already know, I spend many of my personal hours as a volunteer Board Member with the St. Michael's Young Leaders, a group of budding professionals that represent the next generation of healthcare philanthropists and community builders.
Collectively, we try to engage Toronto's young professionals with the hospital and its ongoing initiatives, and raise funds to support its world-class research centres. Now, more than ever, our Hospital needs your support.
We are very excited to share that the Board has secured up to $3 million in funding to match dollar-for-dollar every contribution to The Courage Fund, a special initiative to support the Hospital's highest-priority needs. These proceeds will be used to properly equip the testing labs, critical care rooms and mobile units to ensure the comfort and safety that those most affected by the virus, including both patients and front-line staff.
These are very testing times for all of our friends, colleagues, family members, and the greater Community. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
