So this weekend, along with my second family RT Ontario, I streamed (for 24 hours!) to raise money for children's miracle network hospitals in Ontario. The large majority of us chose to raise for CHEO, the Children's hospital of Eastern Ontario.
This is my second year doing this and frankly, going into it this year I wasn't sure how we would do. Thankfully I had a phenomenal slew of people to work with, both nearby and abroad who helped make this a rip-roaring success!
Last year we raised ~1800 dollars, which was phenomenal. Having been to CHEO and shown around, I've seen that, despite a donation like that being a drop in a bucket, the hospital is highly reliant on fundraisers like these. Most of their equipment costs several dozen, or several hundred thousands of dollars to replace or update.
This year however, we managed to raise $3,124 for CHEO. This comes out to almost 5 grand over two years which is absolutely unreal. So I wanted to take a second to thank everybody who's aided me/my team either through donation, or offers for on-site help. In addition, massive props to everybody who's helped fundraise and who took part in the 24 hour stream, either last year, this year, or both! You helped make such unreal numbers possible. It's been such an honor to be able to give back in such a big way to a hospital that's close to home, and close to heart.
Much love and hope everybody is well, despite being exhausted I'm over the moon.
