Heavy Duty Aftermarket Canada (HDAC) has been raising funds for the SickKids Foundation at its Annual Business Conference since 1984 to help sick children and their families.
For the last 41 years, the SickKids Foundation has been raising funds on behalf of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, ON because it believes that improving the health and well-being of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society. HDAC has been inspired by the Foundation’s dedication to improving the health and well-being of children and is committed to supporting the Hospital for Sick Children in its work with the more than 100,000 patients it sees every year and the more than 2,000 research programs it operates.
At the 29th Annual Business Conference in June 2013, HDAC raised more than $62,000 for the Foundation, which is almost double the amount raised the previous year and which brought the Council’s total donations to more than $340,000. Though HDAC is extremely proud of this accomplishment and is grateful to all its members for their support, the Board of Directors is hoping to do more in order to help more kids, but they need your help!
At your next company BBQ, trade show, gala event, or team building day, why not raise some money for a very deserving cause? Here are some activities that your company can organize to raise money for SickKids:
- Bake sale
- Raffle contest
- 50:50 draw
- Pay to wear your favourite jersey to work day
- Pancake breakfast
And if the knowledge that you and your coworkers are changing the lives of sick children isn’t enough, HDAC is creating a bit of friendly competition by highlighting events in The Dispatch and keeping track of the top donors.
Get involved and join HDAC in working with SickKids for healthier kids and a better world!!
