Welcome to My Project Sunshine B&O Yorkville Run Page:
I am once again participating in the 2018 B&O Yorkville Run to support the important work of Project Sunshine Canada. It is only two weeks away on Sunday September 9.
Project Sunshine means a lot to my family (Butler-Singers). My wife is on the board and myself and our 3 girls are always helping this great cause throughout the year. We would greatly appreciate if you donate again this year or make a donation for the first time. This event is extremely important to Project Sunshine and the children.
The money raised from this event supports programming in hospitals and healthcare facilities for young patients and their families. Project Sunshine Canada is a registered Canadian charity, and part of an international team that provides free creative, educational, recreational and social programs to children and their families facing medical challenges. Since 2012 alone over 20,000 children and their families have participated in Project Sunshine Canada programs in 22 healthcare facilities in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland & Labrador. Project Sunshine is also active in the USA, Kenya, China and Israel.
Project Sunshine Canada volunteers bring sunny friendly smiles, familiar activities like colouring, arts and crafts, readings, stories and special events to make the medical experience less overwhelming and as stress-free as possible! We also help parents and caregivers destress, unwind and feel human again through massage therapy, Comfort Care kits, peer support opportunities and crafts.
The work that Project Sunshine Canada volunteers do locally and across the country has a huge impact on the emotional wellbeing of children and families facing medical challenges. Your support goes a long way with immediate impact – it does not take much to brighten the day of a young child!
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal!
Thanks for your support!
